The combination of sweet potato and marshmallow makes for a nice balance of sweetness without being overly so. But if you love a super sweet casserole add ⅓ cup brown sugar to the mashed sweet potato mixture.
For a unique variation try adding 1 to 2 teaspoons of coffee hawaij. Learn more about this spice mix in the video below.
- Cook Time
