    One of my favs. I use canned/drained sweet potatoes. I put chopped pecans in my flakes (Wheaties). I double the batch and have a yummy - almost dessert like addition to any meal, just in the freezer waiting to be pulled out and popped in the oven. Put the potatoe mixture around a BIG marshmellow.

    This sounds really good but I am a bit confused. 5 cups of pumpkin and you use about a 1/4 cup for each marshmellow and only get 8 of the balls made? Gotta try it.

    When I started reading the recipe, I thought it was going to be a cookie. But it's dessert for dinner. :lol:
