Irish Potato Candy

These candies have nothing to do with potatoes. They are loaded with coconut, cream cheese and powdered sugar. YUM!!


1/2 stick of butter softened
1/2 brick of cream cheese softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups confectioners sugar
2 1/2 cups sweetened coconut
2 Tablespoons cinnamon


  1. Beat together butter and cream cheese. Slowly add the confectioner’s sugar.
  2. Add the vanilla.
  3. Add the coconut and mix until combined.
  4. You may want to chill the coconut mixture a little before you roll them. I like to use a small ice cream scoop. These are really rich, so you want them to be small.
  5. Roll the coconut mixture into a ball.
  6. Roll the coconut mixture into the cinnamon and put on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  7. Keep the Irish Potatoes in the fridge.
