Sweet Potato Jack-O-Lanterns 

 

A great break from the chocolate and candy for Halloween. Kids and parents will gobble these up!

1 Tbsp. Simply Sunflower Oil

1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon

Salt, as desired

  2. Slice sweet potato into thin slices. Cut into Halloween shapes.

  3. In a medium mixing bowl, mix Simply Sunflower oil, cinnamon, and salt together.

  4. Add your sliced sweet potatoes to the bowl and mix well.

  5. Place aluminum foil over a baking sheet (optional).
