Irish Potato Candy


Nearly 150 joined us today to make their own Irish Potato Candy.  Thank you to Digital Ephemera Photography for making this event possible.

Here is the recipe that we used:

1/4 cup butter, softened
4 oz cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups confectioners' sugar
2 cups flaked coconut
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon or cocoa

In a medium bowl, beat the butter and cream cheese together until smooth. Add the vanilla and confectioners' sugar; beat until smooth. Using your hands if necessary, mix in the coconut. Chill.  Roll into balls or potato shapes and roll in the cinnamon or cocoa.
