I have made this candy for 60 yrs. Confectioners sugar (powdered sugar) is used in this candy. One small potato uses 1 box of powdered sugar, a large potato will use about 2 boxes of sugar.

Icing sugar and confectioners' sugar are the same.

Is icing sugar the same as "Confectioner's sugar". It's what we have always used for icing, or is there something different.

My mother used to make this candy all the time. It is delicious!

I have loved Potato Candy since I was a kid! Had no idea it was a depression era recipe. My recipe called for powder sugar not icing sugar. Not sure if it's the same thing. Love watching people's reaction when I tell them it has potato in it. :D

my grandmothershowed me how to make this candy 60 years ago i've been making it at christmas ever since most people can't tell it has potato in it
