Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

In honor of Saint Patrick’s Day, I am reposting my recipe for Irish Potatoes. I originally made this layout as my ADSR 6.11 entry. Kit is Nick Nack Patty Wack Designed by Today’s Scrap. Template from Twofers Templates: Set 2 by Sweet Tomato Designs. Irish Potato Photo downloaded from net. Fonts are Celticmd and Erin Go Bragh Condensed.

I made a FREE word art of the title on this layout. If you happen to love Irish Potatoes, click here to download.

Irish Potato Candy is a traditional Philadelphia confection, that is not Irish and does not contain any potato. These no-bake, bite-sized candies are super simple to make and all too easy to eat a lot of.

Why are they called Irish Potatoes? They look like potatoes.

According to Philadelphia Irish tradition… they’re the perfect St. Patrick’s Day treat.

Many Families and bakeries have their own variation of this recipe. Our family recipe was first made by my mother. Now,  I make them every year for my family.

¼ cup butter softened 4 ounces cream cheese 1 teaspoon vanilla 4 cups confectioners sugar 2 ½ cups coconut flakes Cinnamon

Beat butter and cream cheese until smooth. Add vanilla and confectioners sugar, beat until smooth. Mix in coconut. Roll into balls. Roll balls in cinnamon. chill to set.
