Mish, I love sweet potatoes, but can't get my family interested in them. This recipe might do the trick. Could I substitute canned sweet potatoes for the fresh? It would eliminate a few steps...
Also, can you think of something I could roll them in other than nuts? My family's not big on nuts, either. Maybe crushed corn flakes?

We get by with a little help from our friends

I don't see why you couldn't use canned, maybe omit the salt. (To me everything in a can has too much salt, but take a taste and adjust seasonings as you like.) I'll do some thinking on what else you might try rolling them in. A thought, if folks don't like the nuts, perhaps try forming the sweet potato mixture around a marshmallow. I don't know if it will ooze/leak, but you could try one as a test run.
