Colossal Christmas Countdown Holiday EventFestival of Delights ~ Star-Shaped Sweet Potato Fries!

Your little ones will think these star sweet potatoes are tops because they can help you make them!


  1. 2 pounds sweet potatoes
  2. 2 Tbs. olive oil
  3. Sea Salt
  4. 1 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
  5. 1 Tbs. honey


  1. Peel sweet potatoes and slice 1/3 inch thick.  Have your child make star shapes with cookie cutters.  Keep leftover pieces with the design cut out.  Cover 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper and preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Let your child toss the potatoes with oil and place them on baking sheets.  Ask her to sprinkle on sea salt.  Bake 30 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a knife.  (Or put them on a microwave-safe plate and cook them on High for 3 minutes.)
  3. Help your child pour the yogurt and honey into a medium bowl and mix them together with a spatula.  Once the fries have cooled for a few minutes, transfer them to a plate or a platter and place the yogurt dip on the side.  Serves 6.
