2 C. mashed sweet potatoes
2/3 C. firmly packed brown sugar
1/8 t. grated nutmeg
1 t. grated orange peel
4 to 6 T. orange juice
8 large marshmallows
2 C. flaked coconut
Use fresh cooked or drained canned sweet potatoes. Add brown sugar, nutmeg, orange peel and juice to mashed potatoes. Mix well. Shape 1/2 cup mixture around a marshmallow; roll in coconut. Place potato balls in a buttered baking dish and bake at 350°F. for 20 minutes or until hot.
Makes 8 balls.
The balls may also be rolled in corn flakes rather than coconut if someone in the family doesn't care for coconut. This is a great do-ahead recipe. Just remember not to cook them too long or the marshmallow will begin to run out.
