I think I made a different recipe altogether because I assumed that the balls were going to be mushy to work with and mushy inside so I used fresh baked potatoes and mashed those instead. Then I mixed in butter brown sugar cinnamon cream cheese one beaten egg the crushed corn flakes and a couple tablespoons of self-rising flour. Then I floured my hands and took some of the mixture placed 4 to 5 miniature marshmallows inside then rolled them into a ball and baked. I put one marshmallow on top during the last few minutes of baking. They tasted great! They tasted like sweet potato pie inside with a crusty outside.
This was a very good idea though I think next time I would add an egg and some flower to firm them up. I also used butter pecan syrup instead of maple. The cornflakes were my favorite part very nice texture. This recipe went over well for Christmas Dinner.
I have mixed feelings on this recipe. The mixture was very runny making it difficlt to form the mix into balls. The balls were flat and not really firm balls. I even tried putting the mixture into the refrigerator for a little while before I rolled it into balls hoping it would firm up; but that didn't work all that well. My feelings are mixed because I ordinarily wouldn't make a recipe with results such as this again; however despite how it looked two people at the table who otherwise do not care for sweet potatoes actually liked it so I'm going to keep it.
