I tried this for the first time at Thanksgiving, and my husband just loved it! it will become a regular holiday dish, I know. The marshmellows on top did not melt well; I think next time I will try marshmellow creme instead. I'd also like to try this with fresh baked sweet potatoes, instead of canned.

I thougtht this recipe was a little bland, but the rest of my family really liked it. If I made it again, I'd add brown sugar to the top and use miniature marshmallows.

Great presentation, the only thing needed is some brown sugar mixed in the sweet potatoes, it's too plain without it.

I added too much syrup and the balls were soft. My friends loved them and the thought that they were rolled in cornflakes they loved even more!!
