Ingredients

  • 5 ounces russet potatoes peeled (or cut a larger potato to size)
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup Nutella or other chocolate hazelnut spread
  • green sanding sugar optional

Instructions

  • Microwave the potato until it's cooked. (Am I the only one who loves the existence of the potato button on the microwave?)
  • Cut the cooked potato into a few pieces and put it into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
  • Beat the potato until it's all mashed up.
  • Add a little powdered sugar at a time and mix until the mixture comes together like a dough.
  • Mix in the Nutella. Your candy is done now and you can make it any shape you want - the easiest choice would be to just roll it into balls. The instructions below explain how to make the shamrocks.
  • Grab a small ball of potato candy and press it into a shamrock lollipop mold.
  • Peel the shamrock out of the mold, break off any extra pieces, and press together any parts that may look off (the part you grabbed the shamrock from might be a bit out of shape).
  • Fill another lollipop mold with a layer of green sanding sugar.
  • Press the candy you just made into the mold with the sanding sugar and remove.
  • Repeat the process for the remaining candy. If the unmolded candy becomes too dry to work with, mix in a TINY drop of water.
  • Store in a sealed contained, separating layers of candy with wax paper.
