  • 9 miniature marshmallows
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter

  • Squeeze sweet potato mixture into 2½” circles. Continue squeezing and tapering sweet potato mound until it is about 2” high. Repeat to form 9 volcanoes.
  • Bake 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Push marshmallow gently into top of volcano. Return to oven and bake 3 to 4 minutes longer or until marshmallows brown and begin to melt.
