My family is kind of crazy about sweet potatoes...but crazy about them in different ways! Every Thanksgiving I end up making two different kinds - my Maple Pecan Streusel Sweet Potato Casserole, and then a marshmallow-topped version for everyone else. And no matter how many marshmallows I pile on top, there are never quite enough. Can you relate?
But the lightbulb went on, and I have created the perfect solution! What about swirling marshmallow creme in between layers of lusciuos brown sugar infused sweet potatoes, and then topping with even more mini-marshmallows?
It was the perfect solution! Swirly, melty marshmallow in every bite now, and nobody fighting over the top of the casserole!
(And I was just a little bit smug about the secret surprise waiting for them!)
I think everyone was in marshmallow heaven once they discovered my surprise - and these disappeared in a FLASH!
It's nice to be able to re-vamp a long-time family favorite and create something even more wonderful! Always a risk, but in this case, everyone loved the addition!
You'll have to give this a try for your marshmallow loving gang as well - and let me know how they like it!
