Fancy Food Show Samples: Sweet Potato Bites

We just got back from the Fancy Food Show in Washington DC!  Throughout the show we were handing out samples of sweet potato bites served with 3 different dipping sauces.  The sauces included spicy peach ketchup, BBQ aioli, and Keylime marshmallow swirl.  All of the samples were made with Kelapo Coconut Oil. Erin’s favorite was the spicy peach ketchup and Alison loved the Keylime marshmallow swirl.  Want to try them for your self?  Check out the recipes below, but unless you want a ton of leftover sauce make sure to scale the recipes down because each recipe yields 2 cups.
