Irish Cinnamon Potato Candy

Despite the title, don’t look for any potatoes in this recipe from our saint patrick’s day recipes collection

1/4 cup butter, softened
4 ounces regular cream cheese, softened (not the low-fat variety)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
16 ounces confectioners’ sugar
7 ounces (about 2 1/2 cups) sweetened flaked coconut
1 tablespoon cinnamon

Cream the butter and cream cheese together. Add vanilla extract and confectioners’ sugar, beating until the mixture forms a ball. Stir in the coconut, and roll the mixture into small balls. Roll the balls into the cinnamon, and chill until firm (about an hour). You can roll the candies a second time in cinnamon after they have chilled.
