Sweet Potato Balls

    4 large sweet potatoes
    2/3 cup packed brown sugar
    2 tablespoons orange juice
    1 teaspoon orange zest
    1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
    2 cups shredded coconut, sweetened
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 large marshmallow per potato ball

  Preheat oven to 350F. Bake the potatoes until tender, then peel and
 mash them. Stir in the brown sugar, orange juice, zest and nutmeg.
 In a separate bowl, toss the coconut with the sugar and cinnamon.
 Press mashed potatoes around each marshmallow, creating a 2 to 3-inch
 diameter ball. Roll the balls in the coconut mixture. Bake for 15 to
 20 minutes. Watch carefully for the last few minutes of cooking; the
 expanding marshmallows can cause the potato balls to burst open.
