My parents celebrated 40 years of marriage last Sunday! What a milestone! So my sister and I, with the help of our brothers and sister in law, decided to throw a small surprise reception directly after church. We got in a little trouble as my parents don't like to be fussed over...but they enjoyed it and I know we made them feel special!
(I did tell my mom she had 10 years to get over it cause at 50 there will be a big party!)
We made some childhood favorites and one of them I thought I'd share in detail today. Good ole' Potato Candy! I'm pretty sure it's an old recipe and a friend at church told me that her mom used to make it out of leftover mashed potatoes.
1 medium potato, baked
1 1b powdered sugar
more powdered sugar for rolling dough
Remove inside of baked potato and place in a medium mixing bowl. Mash.
Add powdered sugar to potato and mix until you have a dough like consistency.
Roll out dough with extra powdered sugar to 1/4" thickness.
Spread peanut butter on dough.
Roll dough into a log form. Slice and place on plate. Chill in refrigerator.
Come back tomorrow for all the details in Soiree Day!
