However, once you take it to the next level and stuff delicious things inside of a sweet potato, I’m a goner.

Marshmallow Stuffed Sweet Potato Fillings
I keep these stuffed sweet potatoes incredibly straight forward and simple.
Butter, mini marshmallows, brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans. You probably already have all of these ingredients in your pantry!
If you have ever been, they are very similar to the loaded sweet potatoes you can get at Texas Roadhouse.
However, I added roasted pecans. The crunch adds a little something extra to them, but is not necessary if you don’t like nuts.
If you don’t have some good pecans on hand, you can also use walnuts in their place.
