I made this last year for Thanksgiving. Well, it is the #1 request from our family and friends for this year

Do love those sweet potatoes, & made this way, they are really nice, we thought! The only change I made was to use just 5 mini marshmallows cut in half to give us a taste of the mallows ~ Everything else was as given here, & our LARGE potato baked up in just about 13 minutes! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]

I thought I'd like this more than I did, but this was just ok for me. 13-15 minutes in the microwave would have been way too long in my microwave. My sweet potato was completely cooked in 8 minutes. Made for 2008 All New Zaar Cookbooks Tag.
