  • 6 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened

  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows, or as needed


  1. Place sweet potatoes in a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes; drain.

  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a deep casserole dish.

  3. Mash potatoes with a potato masher in a bowl until no large lumps remain. Stir in both sugars, cinnamon, and butter until well combined, then transfer to the prepared casserole dish. Cover with a layer of miniature marshmallows.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until marshmallows are browned, about 30 minutes.
