Not enough instructions. I was very confused, and well it was pretty much a huge mess. Delicious but mine really was just a blob.

REVIEW: recipe rating
I'm 48 years old. When I was a kid I couldn't wait to get to my Aunt's on Christmas to eat this candy. Year's later I wanted to make it for my kids but didn't know what it was called. After finding the recipe and making it one year, now my kids and all their friends can't wait until Christmas so I'll make mashed potato candy. It's one of those recipes you'll pass down for generations.
