DIRECTIONS

  • Combine mashed potatoes and vanilla.
  • Adding one cup at a time, blend in enough confectioners' sugar to form stiff, non-sticky dough. (Just how much sugar is needed will depend on moisture of potatoes. Baked potatoes tend to be drier than boiled; leftovers tend to be drier than fresh.)
  • Working with about 1 teaspoon of mixture for each candy, shape into small irregular spheres (like new potatoes) and set out on wax paper to dry slightly before coating.
  • Toss candies a few at a time, in a plastic bag with ground cinnamon.
  • Shake off excess cinnamon.
  • Store candies in cool place or refrigerate.
