I am looking for the recipe for potato candy.

Check the following sites:
You can also use the above recipe, omit the peanut butter and roll the potato and icing sugar mixture into small balls, using about 1 teaspoon for each ball. Roll each ball in melted chocolate, and roll in dessicated (finely chopped) coconut while the chocolate is still warm. Place on wire cake racks to cool and set. It's a good idea to put waxed paper under the cake racks, as the chocolate will drip. My grandma always used to add some flavoring to the potato and icing sugar mixture: peppermint, almond, or rum are really good. You can also tint the mixture to your favorite colour. We do green and red for Christmas. (10/28/2010)
Sorry, I guess the recipe is in the archives! One small boiled potato, mashed, while still warm, add enough powdered (icing) sugar to make a firm dough. It takes a lot of icing sugar! Then add colouring and/or flavouring, if desired, then form a small ball and roll in the chocolate and coconut and set aside, on the cake rack. You have to make them one at a time! They are delicious! (10/28/2010)
