Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

I love twice baked potatoes, they are often the perfect accompaniment to any meal. This easy to make sweet potato version allows for a great savory but satisfyingly sweet spin!

Full time 45 minutes (does not include first baking of potatoes)
Serves 4-6

You will need:

4 medium sweet potatoes, baked until forkable and slightly cooled(save time by getting Potat-OHs)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup miniature marshmallows, cut in half
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp allspice 
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Let us begin:

Preheat you oven to 400' and lightly grease 4-6 small ramekins, set them in a baking dish and set aside.

In a large bowl place your baked potatoes.

Mash well and pull out any large pieces of skin which refuse to mash down.

Add in butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg. Stir well to full incorporate flavors.

Move mixture into a large plastic bag and snip off one corner.

Use bag to pipe potato mixture into your prepared ramekins.

Top with remaining brown sugar and cinnamon. Bake in oven for 10 minutes or until top brown sugar is almost completely melted.

Add on marshmallow pieces and switch oven over to broil. Broil for 2-3 minutes or until marshmallows puff and golden.

Carefully remove from oven and serve immediately, warning use tongs to retrieve and move ramekins they will be extremely hot, cheers!
