Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes

Okay, we lied: These Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes aren't exactly healthy (yes, those are marshmallows on top). However, sweet potatoes are packed with fiber, vitamin B6, potassium and beta-carotene, and are one of those important pregnancy superfoods. To redeem this recipe a little nutritionally, substitute pecans or walnuts for marshmallows.
