Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes in the microwave sweet potato about 10 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: frosting for approximately 8 cupcakes


  • 1 lb sweet potatoes
  • 12 oz milk chocolate chips
dark chocolate

Optional: dark chocolate, sprinkles, strawberries


  1. Place clean sweet potatoes on a plate and cover with another plate.

  5. Let the sweet potatoes sit a little bit, so you don't burn yourself. Then cut them open and scrape the center out into a small food processor and puree for 1 to 2 minutes.

  7. Add the chocolate while the sweet potatoes are still warm to help them melt.
  8. adding chocolate chips to sweet potatoes in processor
  9. If desired while letting the potatoes cool, you could always put the chocolate bits into a covered bowl in the microwave to pre-melt them. I would heat it at 1 minute increments and stop as soon as they are soft, but not losing their shape.
  10. Puree the mix together for a minute.
  11. mixed sweet potato and chocolate in food processor

  12. That's it! Spread on to cool cupcakes, cake or even fresh strawberries. Serve and enjoy!

* Option: you may cook your sweet potatoes in your oven if you prefer.
