Holiday Dish: Toasted Marshmallow Over Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes

Wondering what dish to bring for your next upcoming holiday party??

No one wants to be THAT friend that comes with a dish or dessert they bought while everyone else brought something homemade. That’s the worst, isn’t it? Like a big NO in party culture.

Now that I live on my own, I’ve developed a love for cooking and hosting! As I’ve been hosting my own friends gatherings and parties, I’ve learned just the right kinds of hosting tips and tricks and what kinds of foods to make.

So here’s my favorite EASY (dairy-free) holiday dish that can be used in place of a side like mashed potatoes or even a dessert!

For those who aren’t sweet potato lovers, no worries. This dish kind of reminds me of a less sweet version of pumpkin pie. And if you don’t like pumpkin pie…well…sorry, your loss. Pumpkin pie is great.


For those who love sweet potatoes, here’s your perf dish that you can bring to your next holiday party or serve at your own!
