Sweet Potato Cupcakes with Marshmallow Frosting – Turn one of your favorite side dishes into dessert! Moist spiced sweet potato cupcakes topped with a marshmallow frosting are a great dessert for fall!
Is it cold where you live? It has been in the single digits for highs here this week. Very unlike normal Colorado weather, and I can honestly say…I do not like it one bit! I am not made the for the cold, despite the fact that I grew up in the Mid-West. I am always cold, huddled under a blanket, lots of layers, and most likely with a hot drink in hand. I just do not like winter. Next week we are back into the 40’s, so at least this is relatively short lived. But less than a week ago we were 70 degrees, so it is quite the shock to the system.
Anyway…do you have your Thanksgiving menu planned? Do you have the most important part of it planed? You know I am talking about the dessert, right? Pumpkin or Pecan pie is the traditional dessert, but why not change it up a little this year. Or maybe even use some leftover sweet potatoes to make these cupcakes the next day! Sweet potatoes with marshmallows is a classic holiday side, but I turned it into a dessert! How pretty would these cupcakes be on a tray for your dessert table? I am telling you, they are a must this year!
These cupcakes are super moist and full of fall flavors. Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg to give it that spice you want. They are sweet, but not over the top sweet. The frosting is made with marshmallow fluff to give it that classic flavor combination. Super easy to make too. When you are making your sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving, just bake one extra (make it a large one), and you will be ready to make these cupcakes.
