This recipe is an Easter tradition in my house; my grandmother always makes them for Easter and even though I don’t actually like sweet potatoes I think they are very sweet!
These are super simple to make, and I brought them to our “out-of-towners” Easter dinner and they were a hit! You can also make them with regular marshmallows, if you don’t have access to peeps.
First, bake and mash the sweet potatoes. For a dozen servings you will probably only need 4-5 average sized sweet potatoes or yams (I used yams because they are more orange).
Add a few tablespoons of sugar and sprinkle some cinnamon in the potatoes. Set aside. Line a large baking dish with pineapple rings and spoon the potatoes onto the rings. Place a yellow peep in the middle and put a little more potato around the edges to encompass the peep.
Cook them at 325 degrees for 10-15 minutes, keeping an eye on them so the peeps don’t melt away! Serve warm and enjoy!
