Irish Potato Candy
Candy potatoes? You've got to try it to believe it! These yummy treats are actually American, rather than Irish, inventions, but they are especially popular around St. Patrick's Day. The sweet confections are filled with some favorite spices: sugar, cinnamon, coconut, and cocoa powder. Making them allows your child to practice with measurement and build his motor skills as he rolls the desserts into small, potato-shaped balls.
