Candied sweet potato for Thanksgiving, recipe

This is a new recipe I've tried over last Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. I used the fresh sweet potato to make this and it tastes so much better than the canned yams !

So here it is, a new favorite, easy to make candied sweet red potato:

3 large red sweet potato
2 cups miniature marshmallows + about 1 cup for topping
1 1/4 brown sugar
1 1/4 cup margarine (I used I can't believe it's not butter)
ground cinnamon and nutmeg to taste

Wash the sweet potato and cook it (boil, let it cook on medium heat until almost done). Let them cool, peel and roughly mash them. 

Combine the sugar, 2 cups of marshmallows, margarine, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium saucepan. Cook it on medium heat, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes.

Mix mashed potatoes with the syrup and transfer it to a prepared baking dish. Add some marshmallows on top and bake in the preheated to 400'F oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
