A bit of a misnomer, these candies contain no potato or are from Ireland!

They have Philadelphia roots and resemble an adorable spud and no heat is required. The inside is a mixture of coconut and cream cheese and they get their festive green color from Matcha green tea. A quick roll in some cinnamon and these bite size treats are great for any St. Patrick's Day celebration.

Ingredients

Directions

Place the cream cheese, butter, vanilla, salt and Matcha in the bowl and whisk until smooth. 

Gradually add the powdered sugar. When all of the powdered sugar is incorporated, add the coconut and knead the mixture using your hands until incorporated.

Using a small ice-cream scoop or tablespoon, scoop out evenly portioned pieces of the dough onto a baking sheet. Using your hands shape the dough to resemble mini potatoes. If you find the mixture to be too sticky refrigerate for 20 minutes. 

Add the cinnamon in a small bowl. Place the shaped candies in the cinnamon bowl and roll the candy until completely coated in the cinnamon. Repeat with remaining candies and refrigerate before serving.
