    peanut butter fondant candy

    When I was kid we used to make this candy for Christmas-no idea what it's really called but when it was assembled and cut it looked like spirals. It was delicious and may not have required any cooking. If anyone knows what I'm talking about and has a recipe I would love to have it.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Would this be the one that is made with boiled, chilled potatoes (or mashed potatoes) powdered sugar rolled out, spread with peanutbutter; then rolled jelly roll style, chilled and sliced.

    It is called Potato Candy - it is made with boiled potatoes, confectioner's sugar, peanut butter and vanilla. I Googled potato candy and received numerous recipes. I also remember this from my childhood.

    Oh I remember this .... though ours never had peanut butter in it. And then it was dipped in melted chocolate and paraffin, to create chocolates!

    The version we made didn't have potatoes in it-on the other hand I can't remember what it DID have in it.

    My Mother made them like this without peanut butter. It seams to me she called them "Texas BonBon's". After I left home I would request them at Christmas time.

    Ooh, I think I may have found it!

    PEANUT BUTTER FONDANT

    1 lb. confectioners' sugar
    1/3 c. butter, softened
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1/3 c. light corn syrup

    Mix all ingredients until blended. Roll fondant between wax paper to 1/4 inch thickness. Spread with peanut butter. Roll the mixture in a "jelly roll fashion." Wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours. Cut into slices with serrated knife.

    Looks interesting and yummy. May have to try this. Thanks for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
