Just about any variety of apple can be used in this recipe. The varieties that work best are those that tend to hold up well during roasting, such as Golden Delicious or Granny Smith (because they retain their color, taste and shape during cooking). But the Honeycrisp apple is a great choice too, because the combination of sweet and tart contribute such a fabulous touch to the sweet potatoes. But if you prefer the taste of a certain apple variety, then it's likely it'll work well for you in this recipe.
