no potatoes in these candies - theyre called "potato candies" because the finished product looks like tiny potatoes
1 (3-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, at room temperature
1⁄4 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Pinch of salt
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
Additional powdered sugar (for dusting hands)
About 1 tablespoon ground Cinnamon

In large bowl combine cream cheese, vanilla, and salt; beat with wooden spoon until smooth. Slowly add 2 cups powdered sugar, stirring until thoroughly blended. Stir in coconut. If dough is too sticky, sprinkle with more powdered sugar, 1 tablespoonful at a time.

Wrap tightly in plastic wrap; refrigerate for 20 minutes or until firm enough to handle. Dust clean hands with additional powdered sugar; roll cheese mixture into bite-size, potato-shaped pieces. Place cinnamon in small bowl. Roll each piece in cinnamon.

Cover and store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to one week.
