Shane’s Luck O’ The Irish Potatoes

These sweet spuds are whipped with Philadelphia Cream Cheese and Shredded Coconut, then rolled in Cinnamon for a spiced, dry finish.  This confection has been popular in the Philadelphia area for more then 100 years.  Although Irish Potatoes did not originate in Ireland, the tradition of this confection serves as a memorial to the 19th century hardships in Ireland.  They were most likely created as a commemoration of the Irish Potato Famine that lasted from 1845-1851.  Beat your hunger with these!
