Add powdered sugar one cup at a time until combined and smooth. You may need to scrape down the sides of the bowl in between additions.
Add coconut and mix until combined. Chill the mixture for 20-30 minutes.
Roll into balls "potatoes" about the size of a large marble and finish them off by rolling in cinnamon and brown sugar that's been mixed together.
- This recipe originally called for rolling the candy in straight cinnamon but has been updated to reflect a cinnamon sugar coating to make the cinnamon less intense.
