Yowser Wowser!!!! These are the BOMB!! Soft, sweet, and buttery sweet potatoes that literally melted in our mouths. Very easy to scoop out the pulp. Went nicely with out pork shoulder roast. Would also go well with ham. Thanks for a spetacular side dish. Thanks Nurse Di.

These were, in the words of my grandson--killer!! Almost like a dessert. The filling was rich and sweet. The marshmallow creme and brown sugar are the key ingredients I think. Served this with a lovely baked ham. Thanks Nurse Di, for another yummy recipe.

Usually when I make sweet potatoes I'm left eating them all by myself (well I do like them plain afterall) but this time everyone especially the picky kids loved them. Use this recipe if you have trouble getting your kids to eat their vegtables (or not, they're unbeleivably delicious!)
