Sweet Potatoes Ball

Its turkey, sweet potatoes, pumpkin and apple cider time,, lets do something with my baked sweet potatoes.
Shredded coconut


4 medium sweet potatoes
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp orange juice
1 tsp orange zest
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Mashed sweet potatoes
2 cups shredded coconut
1/4 granulated sugar

1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 large marshmallow per ball

Preheat oven to 350º F. Bake the potatoes until tender, then peel and mash them. Stir in the brown sugar, orange juice, orange zest and nutmeg.

In a separate bowl, mix  coconut, sugar and cinnamon. Press mashed potatoes around each marshmallow, creating  a ball. Roll the balls in the coconut mixture. 

Bake for 15 or 20 minutes,,, watch carefully for the last minutes of cooking, the expanding marshmallows can cause the potatoes to burst open.
