  • 4 sweet potatoes peeled & sliced into thirds
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup pecans chopped
  • 1 cup of mini marshmallows


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat a small baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Place the peeled & sliced sweet potatoes in a pan of cold water then bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until fork-tender, about 20 minutes. Drain the sweet potatoes well. Add the brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and salt then mash together using a potato masher until creamy and smooth. Taste and add more seasonings, to taste, if needed.
  • Spread the sweet potatoes in the prepared baking dish evenly. Sprinkle the top with the chopped pecans.
  • Spread the miniature marshmallows evenly over the top. Place into the oven and bake for 22-25 minutes, or until the marshmallows are golden brown. Remove from the oven and serve. Enjoy.
