How to Make Sweet Potato Marshmallow Casserole

Get ready for a sugar rush -- these tubers are caramelized to sweet perfection, then topped with gooey toasted marshmallows.


  • Step 1: Place potato in baking dish Place the sweet potatoes in the baking dish.
  • Step 2: Combine ingredients Combine the butter, brown sugar, nutmeg, ginger, salt, and cinnamon in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves.
  • Step 3: Pour over potatoes Pour the mixture over the potatoes, and then cover the dish with aluminum foil.
  • Step 4: Bake Bake for 50 minutes in a preheated oven set at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. After 50 minutes, take the foil off and continue baking until the syrup thickens, about 20 minutes.
  • Step 5: Add marshmallows and almonds Sprinkle the marshmallows and almonds on top of the potatoes, put the casserole back in the oven, and increase the oven heat to 500 degrees.
  • TIP: You can substitute pecans for almonds.
  • Step 6: Bake Put the casserole back in the oven until the marshmallows begin to melt and the almonds begin to brown, about 3 minutes. Then let your casserole cool and serve it warm.
  • FACT: North Carolina supplies 40 percent of the U.S. production of sweet potatoes.
