DIRECTIONS

  • NOTE: Be sure to use regular cream cheese, not whipped or reduced fat type.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and cream cheese.
  • Add vanilla and confectioners' sugar.
  • Beat until mixture forms a ball.
  • Stir in coconut with a spoon.
  • Roll the mixture between your hands to form small potato-shaped candies or roll into small balls.
  • Place cinnamon in a shallow dish and roll the balls in it.
  • Place the balls on a cookie sheet and chill for about 1 hour or until firm.
  • If you prefer "dirtier potatoes" roll the candy a second time after they have chilled.
  • Alternatively dip in melted chocolate for Easter eggs.
