Coconut Pecan Sweet Potato Halves are a fun, unique way to have your Thanksgiving sweet potatoes. Not as much sugar as most recipes and tastes just as good!
I have been wanting to make these Sweet Potato Halves for a while now. I make our Baked Potato Halves all the time and I love sweet potatoes, so why not do a sweet potato version? What I found with actually putting the idea into reality was that I had to adjust the process of how it is done. Unfortunately sweet potatoes don’t hold the topping the same way potatoes do. So the solution was starting out the same way, baking the potatoes face down in the topping, then flipping them part way through the baking process. Not too much more work, but totally worth it! What makes it over the top delicious is the cinnamon marshmallow cream topping! Also, we ate these out of the skin like a boat, we aren’t crazy about the skin on sweet potatoes.
