Makes 8 servings

4 medium sweet potatoes
½ cup marshmallow crème
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup dried cranberries, divided

3. Scoop out flesh of potato halves, leaving a ¼-inch border. In a large bowl, beat potato flesh, marshmallow crème, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg at medium speed with a mixer until very smooth. Stir in ½ cup each cranberries and almonds. Spoon filling evenly into potato shells. Top potato filling with remaining almonds and cranberries.
