Would make this again.
My grandmother passed a similar recipe down through the generations. My son is now making these as well. However, our recipe is slightly different:

I boil 1 small white potato; mash it, add a little salt, butter/margarine.

I use one 1 lb. box of confectioners sugar

I use 2 cups of peanut butter, usually Jif because it's creamier

After rolling the balls, refrigerate until very cold (usually overnight).

Melt semi-sweet chocolate chips in a double boiler - a little at a time. Using a vegetable peeler, peel a few strips of parafin wax - probably about 2 Tablespoons and melt with the chocolate. Be careful not to let the chocolate get too hot or cold.

Carefully roll each ball around in the melted chocolate and remove onto wax paper and let cool/refrigerate.

I make balls at Christmas and shape into eggs at Easter.

I love potato candy.
I melted dark chocolate and smeared it on top of the peanut butter then rolled. It was a big hit.

I remember my mom making this as a staple for the Christmas Cookie assortment. She was raised by her grandma in West Va, during the depression. I love these sweets.
