Keto Irish Potato Candy Recipe 

These sweet coconut candies are delicious any time of year, not just on St. Patrick’s Day. 

Irish potatoes are a century old Philadelphia tradition, and although they’re called Irish Potatoes, most recipes don’t  contain potatoes.  They’re a delicious candy made mainly with coconut, confectioner’s sugar and cream cheese and rolled in cinnamon to look like tiny potatoes.
