Step Up Your Thanksgiving Desserts! - Sweet Potato Marshallow Mini Cupcakes

Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday! You guys know the saying about tiny people and how they eat the most?! Totally applies to me! I start my countdown to Thanksgiving as soon as September rolls around and I literally remind everyone every other day that it's getting closer and closer! 

This year I wanted to try something different and because I LOVE dessert I wanted to find a new dessert recipe to try that still had the holiday feels.... Insert *drumroll*

I'm a sucker for cupcakes (Who doesn't love cake?) And I'm sure RJ is going to love the mini size... Perfect for his little chubby toddler fingers lol. I can't wait for Thanksgiving to roll around and have these sitting on the dessert table!
