I meant to rate this recipe! It's a wonderful recipe... Try it, you won't be disappointed!
boy, I don't know what I did wrong with this recipe. I thought there was a typo about how much powdered sugar to add, until I looked at other recipes for potato candy and saw similar potato to sugar ratios. However, after mixing the ingredients as stated, the mixture was very soupy. I looked at another recipe for suggestions and decided to put it in the fridge to see if it would harden. Just the top did, but not enough to roll it into balls or cut it into squares. I resisted adding more powdered sugar to thicken it as it was already VERY sweet. On a positive note, it was rich and tasty, and you can't even tell that there are mashed potatoes in it. I'm not sure I would attempt this recipe again, without knowing why it was so soupy. Sorry.
