“Irish Potato” Candy

I’m certain there is nothing Irish about these sweet confections but they do remind me of little potatoes.  The recipe looked easy to make and I had all the ingredients at home – confectioner’s sugar, shredded coconut, cream (I used half & half) and cinnamon.

I loved that these were ready to eat in two minutes and easy enough for kids to make.  They were tasty but too sweet for me.  If I made these again according to the recipe, I would not use sweetened coconut (which is what I had on hand). I would also try these again with a few variations like rolling them in chocolate or nuts.
