Sweet Potato Marshmallow Bars

Sweet potatoes and pumpkin are pretty much interchangeable in my world. Orange vegetables are as good for you as they are good-tasting.  But let’s not ruin the deliciousness of this recipe by talking about things like beta-carotene, antioxidants and other nutrients.  Instead, just save room for these sweet squares.  – The Oily Guru
