Craving for sweets? These cute yam bears are perfect for a healthy snack, light dessert or lunch boxes~
Ingredients (yield about 5 bite-size bears):
1 Medium purple yam (or sweet potato)
1 tbsp Butter (or soft margarine spread)
1 tsp Honey (optional)
1. Clean and skin your yam or sweet potato, cut into equal size pieces, steam for about 15-20min till thoroughly cooked (when you can poke through the largest chunk easily).
2. While hot, add 1 tbsp of butter or soft margarine spread, mash all the pieces till they become a creamy paste consistency. You can add some honey at this point if you prefer sweeter bears. Honey will make the paste stickier so they hold shape better.
3. Fun Part. Shape the paste with any moulding tool you have. I made them into bears, but they can might as well be bunnies or hearts or anything you want them to be J
4. There you have it! Cute desserts that might be too cute to eat~
