To the person that was looking for the potato candy receipe. Try 1/2 cup of mashed potatos,adding enough poedered sugar to make a dough you can roll out[just keep adding a little at a time] Roll out,spread with peanut butter, roll up jelly roll style and cut into pin wheels, keep in ref, don't let them dry out.
