      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.

      I have made this recipe for years, exactly this way and it is a great treat. Nobody believes you when you explain how it is made, but everybody loves it!

      Im sorry, but this was a horrible mess. Next time try to describe a little better. What size potato..what size BOX of sugar. In my area powdered sugar is not sold in boxes anymore, its bags, and I think they are bigger. They are 2 lbs. So I attempted to double your recipe using two potatos and one 2lb bag of sugar. I have no clue how much sugar was SUPPOSED to be in it because you didnt specify, but I did not think I would need more than 2lbs for only 2 potatoes. It liquified instantly and turned into a soupy mess. I had an extra 1 lb of confec. sugar on hand and added that and no good. As a last resort I added all the regular sugar in the jar in my kitchen, still a soupy mess. Any candy that requires that much sugar will probably kill you anyway.

      FANTASTIC CANDY! I was very shocked to see this listed, and decided my first recipe listed should be the one my husband taught me, which varies somewhat from this one. GREAT TO KNOW SOMEONE ELSE THAT MAKES THIS FANTASTIC TREAT!
