Sweet Potato Bundles

Coconut, orange zest, and marshmallows jazz things up these Sweet Potato Bundles perfectly, as you have a bit of a sweet tooth as I do.

Ingredients

  • 4 large sweet potatoes
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 cups shredded coconut sweetened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 large marshmallow per sweet potato bundle

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Bake the potatoes until tender, then peel and mash them. Stir in the brown sugar, orange juice, zest and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, toss the coconut with the sugar and cinnamon. Press mashed potatoes around each marshmallow, creating a 2 to 3-inch diameter ball. Roll the balls in the coconut mixture. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Watch carefully for the last few minutes of cooking; the expanding marshmallows can cause the potato balls to burst open.
