Would make this again.
My Grandmother made this for Christmas every year and gave it to us in a special tin every year. Now I make it for my children and grandchildren. 5 stars

I cannot believe I just saw this recipe. My Grandmother made it every Christmas and gave it to my family in a special round tin every year. I waited every Christmas for that tin to come.
No one here in Minnesota, that I know of, never heard of it and they don\'t think it would taste very good. How wrong they were. I make it every year, even if I have to eat it all myself. Thank you for publishing this awesome family recipe.
5 stars

Would make this again.
I used Nutella instead of peanut butter. Yumm! Add a little bit of orange zest or extract to the sugar and potato dough for another yummy flavor (along w the Nutella). 5 stars
