RSO-Infused Irish Potato Candy at Home Grown Apothecary

Cannabis-Infused Irish Potato Candy

Happy St. Patty’s Day! Today’s recipe comes from Richard and is a Pennsylvania special- Irish Potato Candies- the snack that is neither from Ireland, nor made of potatoes!


  • oz room temperature cream cheese
  • 4 Tbs softened cannabis-infused butter
  • tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 2/3 flaked sweetened coconut (angel flake is best)
  • 1 1/2 Tbs cinnamon


  • Large Bowl
  • Electric Mixer
  • Rubber Spatula
  • Baking Sheet
  • Aluminum Foil or Parchment (easy cleanup- optional)
  • Mixing Spoon


Try substituting infused- coconut oil!

This can be made in the same way as the butter, check out the butter recipe for more information!


Yields about 4 1/2 dozen pieces

Prep Time is about half an hour

BUTTER remove your butter from the fridge in advance as the recipe calls for room temperature ingredients. This recipe will yield 54 pieces at approximately 6mg/piece if you followed our butter recipe- this will vary based on your RSOs initial percentage. Use your dosing guide below to calculate the dosage per piece in your batch.

BEAT cream cheese, infused-butter, vanilla, and salt on medium in a large mixing bowl for about 3 minutes.

ADD powdered sugar slowly while beating on low speed. Once fully added return to medium and beat until smooth.

SLOWLY add the coconut and beat on low until fully incorporated. Making sure that mixture is evenly mixed ensures that each of your candied potatoes will be evenly dosed in the end.

SCOOP mixture out by tablespoon onto a parchment lined baking sheet and place in refrigerator for half an hour to thicken.

DUSTING Put your cinnamon in a small bowl. Take baking sheet from fridge and take one piece and form into a potato shape by rolling in your hands. Roll your “potato” in the cinnamon until fully coated and return to making sheet. Repeat with the remaining pieces.

Dosing Guide

Per OLCC research: The average psycho-active threshold is 5mg of THC, some people need less, some people need more.*

Find our Guide for How to Make RSO-Infused Butter Here!

Each Irish Potato Candy will be approximately 6mg of THC (or CBD if you used CBD RSO!) This calculation is based on infusing 8TBS of butter with one syringe of RSO (approximately 700mg) and only using 4Tbs of butter in this recipe. Remember that RSO cannabis content can vary by batch so always make sure to calculate based on the syringe of goo that you used. Test results are on the label. Here is the math for you:

MG of RSO added to butter ÷ 2 (using half a stick) = Dosage per Batch

MG of Batch ÷ Number of Pieces (54) = Dosage per Piece

Our best recommendation is to make sure to inform your guests how much CBD or THC there is per piece so they can medicate themselves appropriately!

*Always start low and add slowly, remembering to wait at least 1.5 hours after eating an edible before consuming more as it takes time for your body to digest the cannabis and feel the effects.
