  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place sweet potatoes into a large pot and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes; drain. Transfer drained sweet potatoes to a baking sheet.
  3. Bake sweet potatoes in the preheated oven until dried, 3 to 4 minutes; transfer to a mixing bowl.
  4. Mash sweet potatoes with a potato masher until no large lumps remain; add sugar, allspice, and cinnamon. Continue mashing potatoes until evenly seasoned; spoon into a casserole dish. Spread miniature marshmallows in an even layer over the sweet potato mixture.
  5. Bake in oven until marshmallows just begin to brown, 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. Switch oven to broil; cook under broiler for 1 minute.

Simple and simply delicious! I use canned Yams and whip all the ingredients (except marshmallows) with an electric mixer. This is always a crowd pleaser! And yes, this is understated in its swee...

I used 1/2 c brown sugar and did 2x the amounts for the seasonings and it turned out really well- perfect sweetness.

The two-step cooking process made for an easy mash. I also added about 1/3 tsp of nutmeg, upped the sugar, and added about 1 T of butter and about 1/4 C of heavy cream to sweeten the dish.

I baked the potatoes in the oven for 1 1/2 hours till done. Afterwards I let them cool and then cut them in half the long way. I scooped out the potatoes added the spices and placed the mixture ...

I used 4 potatos rather then 6 and yes i would make them again for sure
