    6 small sweet potatoes
    3/4 stick of butter at room temperature
    1/2 cup light brown sugar
    2 cup pecans, toasted and coarsely chopped
    3/4 cup miniature marshmallows
    1/4 cup flour
    1/4 tsp. salt

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pierce the potatoes in several places and place them on a baking sheet. Bake until fork tender, about 60 minutes. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, stir together the butter and sugar. Add the pecans, marshmallows, flour and salt until the mixture forms loose crumbs. Remove the potatoes from the oven and cut them long ways enough to open them up. Gently push together the ends of each potato to open them up a bit. Stuff the openings with the marshmallow mixture. Return them to the oven. Bake in 400 degree oven until the stuffing in the potatoes is golden brown and melted, about 5 minutes.
