1 can (18 ounces) vacuum-pack sweet potatoes
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
6 large marshmallows
1 tablespoon melted butter or margarine
1/3 cup cornflake crumbs

1. Preheat oven to 450º F.
2. Grease the bottom of a small sheet pan.
3. Mash sweet potatoes.
4. Blend the brown sugar into the mashed potatoes.
5. Shape 1/6 of the potato mixture (approx. 1/3 cup) around each marshmallow to form a ball.
6. Brush one sweet potato ball at a time with butter; roll in cornflake crumbs to coat. Place on sheet pan.
7. Bake 8-10 minutes or until coating is light brown.

Yield: 6 balls

Contributor’s note: I used my homegrown sweet potatoes. After cooking and mashing them, I weighed out 18 ounces of the mashed potatoes for this recipe. Refrigerating the mashed mixture before forming balls makes handling easier.
