    Heather Beldin's Note:

    These are the best sweet potatoes ever. My mother taught me how to make these and it is a tradition at our home to have them. We never have any left. You can double the batch for big family gatherings too. We do all the time. I am now getting my husbands family hooked on these wonderful potatoes.:)

      I make this for my church special dinners at Thanksgiving and at CHRISTmas, but I sprinkle chopped pecans over the poatoes before I add the marshmallows.

      This is how my nana made these, how mom made these,and how I make these :) The brown sugar is so sweet and with the butter - hmm yummy!!!! You need no other spices. This year we did not use the marshmallows and its just as good. Wanted to post a picture but they are all gone, so maybe I'll make them this weekend and snap one then. Thanks for posting this recipe it is a classic indeed.

      This was really good, I stirred in the marshmellows after they melted, I liked how it looked better. This was very easy and smelled great cooking. I am not a huge fan of sweet things but my husband said this was his favorite thing I made for our Easter dinner. Thank you.
