Four sweet potato desserts you MUST try this holiday season

Thanksgiving is like the Met Gala for old recipes! The grandmothers, aunts and other elders prepare the feasts early in the week, from the star of the show (the turkey) to the gatekeepers of ITIS (desserts). And sweet potato pie shines on every holiday, but this Thanksgiving, home cooks show the endless creativity that can come with a little ingredient remixing.

Now, we know Thanksgiving isn’t the time to experiment, but here are four sweet potatoes to add to your wobbly plates this holiday season!

Mac & Cheese Sweet Potato Pie

If you like chocolate yams and macaroni and cheese, this might be the recipe for you! Baker Nikki Moore decided to combine two of the mainstays of soul food and the result is delicious!

And if you looked at this recipe and thought, “heart attack,” here’s what Nikki had to say about it:

Sweet Potato Cornbread

Another mix of classics! This time last year, Miles Barnett had sleep apnea with his Sweet Potato Cornbread. And the home chef is back whipping up moist, fluffy and honey-smeared treats this holiday season. Start your Blackity BLACK Friday shopping by adding his recipe to your cookbook for under $2!

Sweet potato casserole

Think of sweet yams, but not really, and as a stew! Home cook Candace boasts a social audience of over 100,000 followers, whom she teaches how to throw down in the kitchen. Along with her remixed recipes like Cornbread Dressing and Turkey with Cajun Butter, Candace also shared one of the ways she serves up sweet potatoes! Besides using all the necessary ingredients, Candace topped her remix with streusel and added marshmallows on top!

Sweet Potatoes and Thanksgiving Cinnamon Rolls

Although the recipe for sweet potato cinnamon rolls isn’t new, a baker named Sweet Roll Dealer has social media tongues wagging! Owner of Cranky Granny’s Sweet Rolls in Texas, the retailer specializes in stuffed rolls – both sweet and savory!

And this holiday season, the retailer also added a special Thanksgiving roll to the menu. Keep scrolling to see her turkey, mac & cheese, and sweet potato rolls slathered with gravy! Chile, pass the TWO of us!
