Creamy cinnamon sweet potato mousse with candied pecans, mini marshmallows and drizzled with maple bourbon sauce.


  • 8 oz Sweet Things® Mashed Sweet Potatoes (item M0007)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
  • 8 oz. whipped topping
  • 4 oz. sugared pecans
  • 2 oz. miniature marshmallows
  • 4 Tbsp Maple Bourbon Sauce

  • Maple Bourbon Sauce
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons bourbon
  • 1 cup light cream shopping list
  • 1/4 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream, whipped

  • – Combine maple syrup and bourbon in a saucepan. Remember – darker maple syrup has a stronger maple flavor. So choose a darker grade A for more maple flavor. Over medium heat, bring to a boil, and cook until reduced by 1/3, about 10 minutes; set aside to cool.
  • – Put light cream and vanilla bean in a large saucepan, and bring to a boil. Immediately remove from heat, and let bean infuse cream for about 10 minutes. Remove bean, and scrape pulp into cream.
  • – Whisk together egg yolks, sugar and cornstarch. Stir in 1/2 C. cream and return mixture to saucepan with rest of cream. Stirring continuously, cook over low heat until thickened enough to coat back of a wooden spoon, 5-8 minutes.
  • – Add reduced maple syrup and bourbon, and strain through a fine sieve into a bowl set in ice. Stir until completely chilled, then fold in whipped cream.
