Sweet Potato Marshmallow Swirl Cheesecake
Recipe via tasteofhome.com
We love root vegetables in desserts for their natural sweetness and they fit perfectly when used in desserts. A nice replacement to always using chocolate or other baking ingredient habits. We also love baked cheesecakes for their really fluffy inside without the sensation of having eaten half of the pie and feeling uncomfortably full. Great for an after lunch between friends and perfect with a coffee. This can be served with a carrot ice cream to marry the theme together. Let your creativity flow.

We love children but sometimes, we forget to also think about ourselves. This is where this recipe comes in handy. Whisky is used but any other brown alcohol can be the substitute. Dark spiced rum is also a good thing to consider. These are perfect for an after-dinner party to get everyone’s inner child out with a grown-up approach. Or perhaps on a game night. Simple and very delicious and not that boozy. Unless you eat 50 of them of course.
