Sweet Potato Fries with Toasted Marshmallow Dipping Sauce

These Sweet Potato Fries are easy to make, baked to slightly crispy, lightly seasoned and paired with a delicious Toasted Marshmallow Dipping Sauce to satisfy your salty and sweet cravings!


We plant sweet potato slips every Spring to harvest fresh sweet potatoes from our garden in the Fall. Any time we can use produce that comes out of the garden, that we've grown ourselves, I love. I sure enjoy that sweet potatoes can be prepared savory and sweet and taste wonderful both ways. For this recipe it is a nice and light mix between the two!


For sweet potato fries, I enjoy a little crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Baking the sweet potato fries using Clabber Girl Corn Starch, will give you a crispy sweet potato fry that is perfectly crispy on the outside and still soft and flavorful on the inside.

This recipe is easy to make. You simply cut the sweet potatoes into long strips, about 1/4 inch wide. They then are soaked in water for about 30 minutes. This helps them to soften up a little for baking.



The dipping sauce comes together quickly.

Ingredients for Sweet Potato Fries with Toasted Marshmallow Dipping Sauce

Sweet Potato Fries
2 Sweet Potatoes, peeled
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
Fine sea salt, to taste

Toasted Marshmallow Dipping Sauce 

1 bag Large Marshmallows
1/2 cup Heavy Cream
1 tsp Cinnamon 
1 tsp Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp Nutmeg 

Directions for Sweet Potato Fries with Toasted Marshmallow Dipping Sauce

1. Peel and slice the sweet potatoes into long, thin strips. About 1/4 inch wide, so all the strips are evenly cut. 

2. Place the fry strips into a large bowl of water and soak for about 30 minutes. 

3. After the 30 minutes, remove the fries from the water and pat dry with a clean towel. 

4. Add the fries to a medium sized bowl. Drizzle the olive oil over the fries and use a spatula and mix together so all the fries are well coated. 

5. In a separate bowl, add the Clabber Girl Corn Starch, garlic powder, and pepper and whisk together until well blended. 

6. Sprinkle the corn starch mixture over the prepared sweet potato fries and toss so they are all well coated. 

7. Evenly space on a Parchment paper lined baking sheet and place in the oven for 15 minutes at 425 degrees F. 

8. Remove the baking sheet, then using a spatula flip over the sweet potato fries, keeping them evenly spaced. Then place them back in the oven for an additional 15 minutes. 

9. Remove the baking sheet and lightly sprinkle the sweet potato fries with the fine sea salt and let cool for 5 minutes. Serve warm with the Toasted Marshmallow Dipping Sauce.

10. While the fries are baking, is a great time to get the sauce started.

11. Evenly place the large marshmallows on a baking sheet and place in the oven. The same oven temperature is fine. Watch for the marshmallows to become lightly toasted, about 2 minutes.

12. Once the marshmallows are toasted, remove them from the oven.

13. Using a blender, add the heavy cream, marshmallows, cinnamon, brown sugar, and nutmeg and blend together until well mixed and combined.

14. Pour the blended sauce into dipping bowl.

15. Enjoy the Sweet Potato Fries with the Toasted Marshmallow Dipping Sauce.

Recipe notes:
You will want to make the sauce right at the time you are ready to serve the fries, as the sauce will set up after a while.

This is a great snack to enjoy at home or to serve for a pot luck meal. The sweet and salty pairing is so yummy!
