My Nutella potato candy has the consistency of fudge and tastes like Nutella with the sweetness of white chocolate!
But really, candy made with potatoes? Yes, potatoes. You’ll never know they are there.
There are two types of potato candy. There’s the potato candy that looks just like potatoes (the resemblance is astonishing) but actually contains no potatoes. Then, there is the potato candy that, like mine, is made with potatoes.
Potato candy that contains potatoes is typically made of boiled potatoes and powdered sugar that are mixed together, rolled out thinly, topped with peanut butter, rolled up like a jelly roll, and sliced. You can see the traditional way of making potato candy on Southern Plate. I switched things up by microwaving the potatoes (easier), using Nutella instead of peanut butter, mixing everything together, and molding the potato candy into shamrocks (because shamrocks are adorable!).

Congrats to Jaime Lange Burke who correctly guessed the other two ingredients in a Facebook comment when shown only the image of a potato!
