Sweet Potato Stuffed Baked Apples with Toasted Marshmallows

Serves 8

Ingredients:

8 apples (Jonathan, Rome or Braeburn work best)

32oz can sweet potatoes/yams packed in light syrup, drained

6 Tablespoons Butter

4 Tablespoons brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

mini marshmallows

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cut a small slice off the bottoms of the apples so they sit flat. Cut the tops off and scoop out the insides, leaving 1/2" around the sides and bottom of the apple.

2. Mash sweet potatoes, butter, brown sugar and salt. Fill apples with mixture.

3. Place stuffed apples inside a baking dish and bake for 45-60 minutes, or until apples are soft, but not split.

4. Top with mini marshmallows and toast under the broiler.
