Irish Potato Candies

1 (8-oz) package Cream cheese
½ cup margarine or butter
1-teaspoon vanilla
2 (1-pound) boxes confectioners’ sugar
2 cups flaked coconut
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1. In large bowl using mixer at medium speed, beat cream cheese, margarine and vanilla until well blended.
2. Stir in confectioners’ sugar and coconut until well blended.
3. If mixture is too soft to handle, chill 1 hour before shaping. Shape into 1” ovals or balls; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Chill 1 hour.
4. Place cinnamon in small plastic bag. Shake balls, 4 at a time, in cinnamon.
Store in refrigerator in airtight container. Makes 8-dozen pieces.

I hope you enjoy this unique dish on your St. Patrick's Day. They are very sweet, my mouth is watering just thinking about them.
