Happy Easter!

I hope everyone has/had a nice Easter! We had our big Easter dinner on saturday and we ate lots of tasty food! Here is the dish that I contributed.

Also note my nicer photography. Hooray for using mom and dads camera.

This recipe mostly comes from Steve's sister, Jill, but I lost her recipe so I had to improvise a little. :)

Sweet Potato Marshmallow Balls
Ingredients ( I made a ton, so feel free to cut this recipe in half):

  • 8 Sweet Potatoes
  • 6tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 4tbsp Butter
  • Pinch of Cinnamon
  • Pinch of Nutmeg
  • Dash of Salt
  • 2tbsp Orange Juice
  • Cornflakes
  • Marshmallows
Bake your sweet potatoes at 350 for about an hour until they are very nice and tender.

Peel the skin off and smush up your taters.

At this point my mom and I were having a tater throwdown. Me with my sweet potatoes and her with her regular ones. Here's a pic of what she made!


Add syrup, butter, orange juice, and spices. Mix it all up.

In a bowl crush up a bunch of cornflakes.

Grab a handful of potato mix and smush it into a ball. Roll in the cornflakes til coated and then place on a greased baking sheet.

Look how many I made (34)!!!!

Bake in the oven at 350 for about 5 minutes. Pull them out and smush a marshmallow onto each one. Place back in the oven and cook for another 20ish minutes or until marshmallows are browned to your liking.

Have a Happy Easter and Enjoy!

Hi there!

Beautiful kitchen you're working in there.

Dad used the leftover yam balls in a soup with the ham scraps and hambone. It was really good, but sparse.
