"A great sweet potato casserole recipe -- my children insist on this every holiday! Lots of miniature marshmallows, coconut and pecans make this an extra special and yummy Thanksgiving delight. Use fresh or canned sweet potatoes. Prepare the topping while the casserole is baking."

OMG! These were the best sweet papas I've ever had. The only thing I did different was use about half the white sugar and increased the brown sugar to about 1/2 - 3/4 cup jam packed. Oh, and a...

Wonderful!I used canned sweet potatoes in syrup and cut the sugar in half! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I've been making this recipe for about 3 years now and whenever I go anywhere, I'm always asked to bring this dish specifically. I can't even remember how many times I've forwarded this recipe ...

I didn't really care too much for this dish. I thought it was too sweet. I think if I ever made this again, I'd not use as much sugar.

Excellent recipe and this is now going to be a holiday standard. I like things sweet, but I cut the sugar in half and only used 1 stick of butter for the casserole and 1/2 stick for the topping...
