Give Me 5 Monday: Holiday Foods

Give Me 5 Monday
Hosted by Becca's Buzz

Becca says..."There's nothing like the holidays for creative special foods that people only make once a year. Yummy!"

Give Me Five favorite holiday foods.
1. Potato Candy
2. Divinity
3. Fudge
4. Turkey
5. Ham


2 (1 lb.) boxes powdered sugar
1/2 c. hot mashed potatoes, drained
1 sm. jar crunchy peanut butter

Mix sifted sugar into potatoes a little at a time by hand. (Don't panic when potatoes liquify as the first sugar is added. This is what it's supposed to do. Just keep adding sugar until it is pastry consistency.) Sprinkle wax paper with additional powdered sugar. Take baseball-sized ball of mixture and roll out like pastry. Spread with peanut butter and roll like a jelly roll. Wrap rolls in plastic wrap.


  1. That potato candy sounds interesting, and very sweet.

    Merry Christmas!

  2. Never heard of this! Interesting...

  3. Wow, I didn't know you could turn potato into candy, and I'm a die-hard potato lover!
    Thanks for the recipe :o)
