Irish Potatoes
March 17, 2012

This is a really fun and easy recipe! I read the reviews and was careful to use unsweetened shredded coconut, so the potatoes didn't come out too sweet. I used a very heaping cup of coconut and a scant cup of powdered sugar. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla. The consistentcy came out just perfect, like moldable clay. I found that pressing the balls of coconut mixture in the palms of my hands warmed them and made them more smooth and realistic looking. A plastic snack bag made it easy to coat three or four potatoes at a time with the cinnamon. They really look like little potatoes! And they taste like yummy coconut macaroons. I'm adding a photo of my happy results. Five stars for fun, easy, delicious and no baking.
