Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallow Topping

Amanda Spencer


I am designated by my family to bring this every Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. I love to see their faces and hear all the oou's and ahh's when they take their first bite. There is no need for sweet potato pie because this is more like a dessert than a vegetable side.
