Turn Thanksgiving Leftovers Into Candy

If you celebrated American Thanksgiving yesterday, there's a good chance your fridge is currently stuffed with leftovers begging to be eaten. I'm not going to deny you your turkey-stuffing-gravy-cranberry sauce sandwich, but if you find yourself with an excess of yams or potatoes and no more room on your leftovers plate, here are a few recipes to turn those savory sides into sweets.

Sweet Potato Marshmallows are a great way to use up leftover baked sweet potatoes or yams! Turn those healthy veggies into fluffy marshmallows scented with spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Like their brethren pumpkin marshmallows, I think these would be outrageously good turned into s'mores with cinnamon graham crackers and white chocolate. You know, just in case you haven't had enough million-calorie desserts recently.

If you're in more of a fudge mood, this Sweet Potato Cinnamon Fudge uses sweet potato puree and cinnamon chips to produce a smooth fudge with an irresistible fall flavor. Looking for more chocolate flavor? Sweet Potato Brownie Fudge has just two ingredients: brownie mix and sweet potato (or pumpkin) puree. The resulting fudge bites are dense, dark chocolatey squares that are low-calorie and low-guilt.

Here are a few more leftover recipes, using regular ole mashed potatoes:
