  • 3 sweet potatoes
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar packed
  • 3 Tablespoons flour
  • 3 Tablespoons butter vegan
  • 1/8 cup mini marshmallows Dandies brand


  • Preheat oven to 400°
  • Wash and score - or poke the sweet potatoes with a fork.
  • Bake for 40 minutes or until tender when you pinch them. Take them out to cool slightly, leaving them in the baking pan. Do not turn off the oven.
  • While sweet potatoes are cooling, you can prepare the praline topping.
  • Melt butter in microwave and chop pecans.
  • Mix together the melted butter, brown sugar, and flour. Add in and continue mixing the pecans. Set aside.
  • The sweet potaotes should be cool enough to handle now. Cut a slit in the top of each and pinch to open.
  • For a finished look, fold down and tuck the edges of the skins where you cut the slit.
  • Fluff the baked sweet potatoes with a fork.
  • Add in the praline topping and return to the oven for 15 minutes.
  • If you desire to add marshmallows on top, only do so the last 5 minutes of baking.
