Recipe: Irish Potatoes

This is perfect time to post my Irish Potato recipe. With St. Patrick’s Day just a couple days away, this is great treat to bring to parties, also a conversation piece because a lot of people don’t know what’s in a Irish Potato.

What you will need:
1/4 cup softened butter
4 ounces cream cheese (softened)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
16 ounces of confectioner’s sugar
7 ounces coconut flakes

Blend together the butter and cream cheese for about 2-3min.
Than add the vanilla and confectioner’s sugar and blend until completely combined and starts to form a ball.
Stir in with a spoon the coconut flakes.
Messy Part:
Take small amounts of mixture and roll into small balls and roll in cinnamon until covered.
Place the cinnamon balls on a covered sheet pan.
After your done doing that with all the mixture place in fridge for about an hour or until firm.
Yields approx 5 dozen.
