      I made this for Thanksgiving, and everyone loved it! Much easier using the canned sweet potatoes-goes together in a flash. The only suggestion I would make, is to wait to add the marshmallows the last few minutes of baking-mine burned before the rest of it was done.

      This is the way I've been making my sweet potatoes for years! I usually cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup and Use large marshmallows instead of miniature (just a personal preferance) I think they turn out great with the canned potatoes and it's such a timesaver. I just cut up the butter into small pieces and sprinkle it over them, then sprinkle with sugar, top with marshmallows and toss them in the oven. It doesn't get any easier than this. Thanks!
