2. Then preheat your oven to 400F. Continue with the Halloween recipe if you can...!!!

Cook sweet potatoes in large pot of boiling water until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain; transfer potatoes to large bowl and add butter. Using your electric mixer, beat until smooth. Add egg, sugar, spice and salt; beat to blend. Transfer mixture to 8 x 8 inch baking dish. Bake potatoes until beginning to brown around edges and slightly puffed, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven.

Instructions For Topping: While the sweet potatoes are baking, prepare the dirt topping: Mix together all the dirt ingredients in a medium bowl. Spoon topping evenly over the sweet potatoes. Return to oven and bake until golden brown and crisp, about 10 minutes longer.
