Cuisine: Comfort Food
Servings: 5 people


  • 2 sweet potatoes skinny enough to fit in a muffin tin
  • 8 Tablespoons melted butter divided use
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup marshmallow fluff
  • 1/4 cup pecans chopped


  • Preheat your pellet grill (or oven) to 350 degrees F.
  • Peel the sweet potatoes and slice very thinly. You can even use a mandolin to slice the sweet potatoes evenly. Brush the cups of a muffin tin with some of the melted butter. Stack 5-6 slices of sweet potato in the bottom of each muffin cup.
  • In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Spoon a teaspoon of the butter/brown sugar mixture over each of the small stacks of potatoes. Fill the rest of the muffin tins with the remaining sweet potatoes.
  • Top each stack with the remaining brown sugar and butter mixture then place in the grill/oven. Bake for 40 minutes.
  • Remove the muffin tin from the grill or oven and top each with a tablespoon of the marshmallow fluff and a sprinkle of the pecans. Return to the grill and cook for an additional 5 minutes until the marshmallow fluff is heated through and starts to melt down the stacks.
  • Remove the pan from the grill and leave the sweet potato stacks in the muffin tin for 10 minutes while they cool slightly and set. Carefully use a spoon to lift out each stack and transfer to a serving dish. You can also spoon any additional caramel sauce from the muffin tin over the stacks.
