Potato Candy

According to my recipe, this is an “Old Pennsylvania Dutch Recipe.” It is super simple, and is probably quite tasty. The recipe does not say which type of potato to use.  I would think the starchier the better!

And just for fun, here is a picture of my Red Pontiacs I grew last summer.  It was my first attempt at potatoes and I was happy with the results.taters

Of course, I’d wash your taters before making candy out of them 🙂

Potato Candy – Old Pennsylvania Dutch Recipe

What is chocolate shot??
