This Thanksgiving sweet potato recipe will be a big hit! For some delicious and much healthier sweet potato recipes please visit this post on The Food Click.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes or until mixture is puffy. Cut off the tops of white mini pumpkins and spoon out seeds. Portion sweet potatoes into pumpkins. Top with marshmallows.
