Sweet Potatoes

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Nikki Thompson

I found this recipe in a Habitat for Humanity cookbook years ago and it has become a staple in our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. It is different in that it has a coconut/brown sugar topping instead of marshmallows.

This is tasty. I did cut the sugar to 2/3 cup in the potatoes and 2/3 cup in the topping. I like the coconut for a change.
