Irish Potatoes
Brought to you from with leprechaun help!

5 or 6 tablespoons softened butter
1/2 cup light Karo syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 & 1/2 cups confectioner sugar
3 & 1/2 cups flaked coconut
cinnamon for rolling

Mix first four ingredients. Add confectioner sugar and coconut and knead until shiny. Roll small amounts in your hands to form potatoes.  Remember potatoes are not perfectly shaped!  Roll your potatoes in a dish of cinnamon. Roll a second time for extra dirty potatoes. Do not refrigerate mixture.  Note: If you find a green Irish potato mixed in, a leprechaun has visited to bring you good luck and sometimes a pot of gold!

Make up some Irish potatoes
from this leprechaun recipe of old,
and if the magic yields a green one
then you will be left a pot of gold!
