Sweet potato casserole is a favorite, especially in the colder months. But if you’re looking to add a playful twist to this traditional dish, marshmallow-stuffed sweet potatoes are a fun alternative. This new take not only maintains the beloved flavors of the original but also adds an element of surprise.

The idea is simple yet ingenious: instead of layering sweet potatoes and marshmallows in a casserole dish, you bake individual sweet potatoes and stuff them with marshmallows. This method transforms the humble sweet potato into a self-contained vessel of deliciousness, with a delightful contrast between the soft, caramelized sweet potato and the melted slightly crispy marshmallow.


  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Marshmallows
  • Butter
  • Cinnamon and nutmeg for extra flavor
  • Maple syrup and chopped nuts for garnish


  1. Bake sweet potatoes until tender, either in the oven or microwave. 
  2. Once slightly cooled, slice open, and fluff interiors with a fork to make room for marshmallows. Generously stuff each potato, then bake or broil for a crispy, caramelized top. 
  3. Serve as eye-catching individual portions, enhanced with chopped nuts or maple syrup. 
  4. Once you get the hang of things, experiment with flavors like vanilla, brown sugar, or bourbon for added depth.
