      Thanks for posting this treat! my mother-in-law used to make this for my husband years ago. I had forgot about it. I cant wait to suprise him this year! I love Gia's comment, "any candy that requires that much sugar will probably kill you anyway" Hello?? It's CANDY! and besides it has a potato in the recipe....I believe that's a vegetable:) Thanks again Tonkcats.

      My mother made this every Christmas and I started to make it with my kids. It does take a lot of powdered sugar to make this candy. I love this stuff and so do my kids.
