‘Ono Sweet Potatoes…the perfect Thanksgiving dish

With Thanksgiving arriving in LESS THAN 2 WEEKS, I bumped this amazing recipe to the top of my list to share with you today.

Hubby and I made it as part of our Hawaii date night and it was *divine* with the perfect flavor combination: crunchy (corn flakes), salty (macadamia nuts), and sweet (bananas).

You need to make this immediately, so you’ll know what you’re missing if you choose not to make it for Thanksgiving (which you won’t choose to do if you make it immediately)! Or, if you don’t live here in the USA, make it whenever you’d like – just make it!

Without further pressure, here’s the recipe for your enjoyment. Bon Appétit!!
