Raspberry-Mallow Sweet Potatoes Recipe

My idea of fun is taking old, reliable recipes and creating new taste twists from them. This is one such success story. A classic holiday vegetable gets a delightful pick-me-up from raspberry preserves and marshmallow creme.—Darlene Godschalx, Prescott, Arizona

  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
  • 1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam, melted
