8. Candied Sweet Potatoes

For those who want to add a touch of sweetness to their sweet potatoes, topping them with marshmallows and baking them in the oven is the perfect solution. The result is a decadent and delicious dish that is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

To make this dish, start by preheating your oven to 375°F. Scrub your sweet potatoes clean and poke them all over with a fork. Place them on a baking sheet and bake for about an hour or until they are fork-tender. Once the sweet potatoes are done, remove them from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before handling them.

Next, slice the sweet potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Place the sweet potato flesh into a bowl and mash it with a fork. Add some butter, salt, and pepper to taste, and mix until everything is well combined. Then, spoon the sweet potato mixture back into the sweet potato skins.

Finally, top the sweet potatoes with mini marshmallows and return them to the oven. Bake for another 5-10 minutes or until the marshmallows are golden brown and gooey. Once they are done, remove the sweet potatoes from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
