These Are The Winning Sweet Potato Casserole Recipes From Our Cook-Off

Mollie's Winning Buttery & Sugary North Mallow Crock Pot Sweet Potato Recipe:


5 15oz cans Bruce’s Yams (drained) 

1 stick of butter (melted, divided 5oz & 3oz) 

1/2 Cup light brown sugar

1/2 Cup heavy cream

Pecan chips to taste 

Pumpkin pie spice to taste 

2 bags North Mallow vanilla bean marshmallows 

  1. In a crockpot, mash the drained yams. Pour in 5oz melted butter & heavy cream. Mash. 
  2. Pour in brown sugar. Mash. 
  3. Sprinkle pumpkin pie spice to taste. I honestly don’t know how much I put in there, but it seemed generous. Get ready to taste test it as you sprinkle, mash, sprinkle, mash, etc! 
  4. Sprinkle in pecan chips (however many you think is enough - maybe 1/2 to 1/3 cup?). Stir. 
  5. Bake in crockpot. Depending on your crockpot, you may want to bake on low anyway. My sweet potatoes baked quickly because my crockpot was very hot, even on the 10 hr setting. It only took about 4-5 hours to bake on the 10 hr setting. 
  6. Wait until after potatoes are baked to put marshmallows on top!
  7. Melt remaining 3oz butter in a mug. Sprinkle more brown sugar in the melted butter. Pour additional pecan chips in there, stir, cover with foil & leave in fridge overnight or while the potatoes are baking. 
  8. Once potatoes are baked, re-melt the butter/sugar/pecans and, with a spoon, spread it on top of potatoes with a spoon. 
  9. About 15-20 minutes before you’re ready to serve the potatoes is when you should place the marshmallows on top, and make sure the crockpot is still plugged in. North Mallow marshmallows melt very easily and don’t take much time to do so. I put them in about 2-3 hours before my coworkers got a chance to try it, so my marshmallows had melted down to a pool of buttery sugar by the time they ate it. If you want to focus on presentation, plan to put them on top at the last minute! 
  10. If you’re using Jetpuff marshmallows, put them in when you normally would. I don’t know when that would be...I don’t usually bake or cook 😂
