Recipe by Dani Jean

This was one of the first things I ate when I first meet my mom's biological parents. I loved it so much I made her dad's wife send me the recipe!

Top Review by Sharon the Rocket

This probably should have a 5 so I will have to make it again and have husband review a 2nd time. I only used 1 cup marshmallows but next time will use the right amount of 2 cups. I had to bake mine a bit longer so it could have been my oven (plus I'm use to 350, not 325). The flavor was really good but I'm not sure if I used too large of potatoes. Will definitely make it again (correctly!) Made for My 3 Chefs 08.
