  • 2 bags of Mr. Yam’s Steamable Sweets Petite Sweet Potatoes
  • 3/4 cup (11/2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup toasted pecan pieces
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F
  2. Put Mr. Yam’s Steamable Sweets Petite Sweet Potatoes in the microwave for 8 Minutes. (One bag of Mr. Yam’s Steamable Sweets at a time.) CAUTION: Bag will be HOT! Make sure you let each bag cool down for about 1-2 minutes before touching!
  3. In a large bowl, mix the butter, brown sugar, and flour together until it's crumbly-looking. Add the cinnamon, salt, pecans, and marshmallows; fold the streusel topping together to combine.

  4. Slice the sweet potatoes lengthwise down the center and push the ends towards the middle so it opens up. Stuff the sweet potatoes generously with the streusel topping and return to the oven. Bake for another 15-20 minutes, or until the topping is bubbly and brown.
