Irish Potato Candy


Irish Potato Candy

A cute little confection that looks just like little potatoes. This kind does not contain potatoes; they are made using cream cheese and coconut.


Prep Time: 20 Minutes

Ready In: 30 Minutes

Servings: 60

Ingredients:

1/4 cup butter, softened

1/2 (8 ounce) package cream cheese

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 cups confectioners' sugar

2 1/2 cups flaked coconut

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Directions:

1.

In a medium bowl, beat the butter and cream cheese together until smooth. Add the vanilla and confectioners' sugar; beat until smooth. Using your hands if necessary, mix in the coconut. Roll into balls or potato shapes, and roll in the cinnamon. Place onto a cookie sheet and chill to set. If desired, roll potatoes in cinnamon again for darker color.
