Irish Potato Candy
What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 stick butter, softened
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened (see  Note)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla  extract
  • 1 (16-ounce) package confectioners'  sugar
  • 1 (7-ounce) package sweetened flaked  coconut (about 2-1/2 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, cream together butter and cream cheese. Add vanilla and  confectioners' sugar and beat until mixture forms a ball. With a spoon, stir in  coconut. Roll mixture between your hands to form small potato-shaped  candies, or roll into small balls. 
  2. Place cinnamon in a shallow dish. Roll balls in cinnamon then place on a  baking sheet, cover, and chill about 1 hour, or until  firm.
  • Make sure to use regular cream cheese, not a whipped or reduced-fat type.  And if you prefer "dirtier potatoes," roll the candies a second time in  additional cinnamon once chilled.
