This recipe is a combination of two different recipes. I love the maple syrup sweet potatoes but it needed something. I went in search and found this wonderful coconut topping that works so well.

Although this is a side dish you would never know it was not dessert.

You will need to keep in mind that the butter must be butter as called for in the recipe.
