If you like your sweet potatoes sugary and cinnamon-y this is recipe for you... my daughter and I do so we liked it but more so without the marshmallows. I did reduce the serving size to 2 to make the recipe... my boys do not like sweet potatoes and I didn't need 10 servings. Read More

Followed the recipe exact... I could not give this more than three stars. It was way too sweet (and I have a LOVE for all things sweet!), and had an almost inedible amount of cinnamon. Next time I will be cutting the white sugar and cinnamon down by at least half! Other than that the recipe was good. Read More

Cinnamon overkill and to sweet. Yikes. I made this recipe the first time exactly as directed. Never again. Even my sweet potato casserole addicted husband didn't like it. The next time I cut the white sugar to 1/2c, the brown sugar to 1/4c, the cinnamon to 1/2T, and added 1t nutmeg. Much better. Oh, and I baked the sweet potatoes instead of boiling. Much easier to peel and give the end result is less dense. Read More

I used one cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup sugar because I love brown sugar. Also used regular marshmallows. Came out great! Read More

Very good and very simple but maybe should have a little less cinnamon (or maybe my sweet potatoes weren't large enough. Thank you! Read More

This was the first time in all my cooking years that I did this myself. I followed the directions... (so easy)! The only thing I changed was the sugar. I did not use any of the sugar in the recipe. What I used was Organic Blue Agave (abt. 2tbs). I do not use regular sugar anymore and this is an excellent replacement also low fat/low sodium margarine. Everything else I followed to the recipe. Everybody LOVED IT!...so did I! Love your recipes they are really so easy!.. 5 star AllRecipes.... JWBronx Read More

Funny enough I added extra cinnamon left out the white sugar so so good I didn't have marshmallows so I used pecans oats and brown sugar on the top....I may not share. I gave 4 because I think I can tweak it and make it even better. Read More
