Irish Potato Candy

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 4 oz. cream cheese - softened
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 box (16 oz.) confectioners' sugar
  • 1 bag (7 oz.) flaked coconut (about 2 1/2 cups)

Preparation -
In a large bowl, at medium speed with an electric mixer, cream the butter and cream cheese together. Beat in the confectioners' sugar and vanilla. Stir in the coconut. Roll the confection with your hands into small oblong potato shapes, like tiny potatoes. Pour the cinnamon into a shallow dish. Lightly roll the potato candies in the cinnamon. Place the cinnamon coated candies on a cookie sheet, cover and chill for at least one hour or until firm.

These are fun to make - a good project for kids!
