Recipe type: Candy
Cuisine: Irish
Serves: 30
Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup butter softened
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 16 oz powdered sugar about 4 cups
  • 7 oz sweetened flaked coconut 2½ cups
Instructions
  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and add ground cinnamon to a small bowl. Set both aside.
  2. Using a stand mixer (or hand mixer + large bowl), cream together butter and cream cheese on medium-high speed until smooth, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Reduce mixer speed to low. Add vanilla extract, then beat for 30 seconds.
  4. Keeping speed on low, slowly scoop in powdered sugar, adding about ⅓ to ½ cup at a time and beating thoroughly between each addition.
  5. Turn off mixer and remove bowl. Pour in flaked coconut and use a spatula (or your hands) to knead the ingredients together.
  6. Using a 1 teaspoon cookie scoop, scoop out dough and roll it between your hands to form a ball. Drop the ball in the small bowl of cinnamon and roll to coat. Place finished candy ball on prepared baking sheet. Repeat this step until all dough has been used.
  7. Place dough in the freezer and let chill for 1 hour or until the candy has set. If desired, roll candy in cinnamon again for a fresh, powdery coat.
  8. Serve candy immediately. Candy can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
