Introducing potato candy, a sweet snack that has absolutely no potato in it. Unless you’re from Philly, you’re probably unfamiliar with the cream cheese–based confection, which is more colloquially known as Irish potato candy. Let’s just say you’ve been missing out.
“This is a hyper-regional dessert made in the Philadelphia area,” recipe developer Erin McDowell tells us, “and it’s especially popular around St. Patrick’s Day. They’re called potatoes because, well, they look like potatoes.” And they taste like a fancy Mounds candy bar, but with cinnamon instead of chocolate.
Lucky for you, making them requires no cooking and just six ingredients. “They’re really soft, sweet and warm—a delicious combination,” McDowell continues. “And they really do look exactly like potatoes!”
