    Light and yummy! I did not have the cornflakes or pecans but it was delicious with only marshmallows on top.

    We've been making this since S.Living first featured it (several years back...) and it is WONDERFUL. Even non-sweet potato eaters try it and then devour it. Perfectly sweet and crunchy. Yummo. No suggestions at all - it's perfect!

    ya have to put the cornflakes in a food processor. The cornflakes get chewie, like chewing on a fingernail. not good.

    This was an instant hit with our family. Rave reviews and is now a must have on Thanksgiving!

    I just made this for Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit. I didn't change anything about it, and it looked and tasted great. I thought that the cornflakes were fine when I first made it, but got rather chewy upon reheating. However, that didn't stop us from finishing all the leftovers!

    My Husband LOVES this recipe and makes me make if for all 5 of out Thanksgivings that we have to attend each year. I omit the cornflakes and pecans because he hates nuts, but it is still GREAT

    If you find cornflakes too chewy, substitute crushed graham crackers or crushed ginger snaps for the topping. I usually omit the marshmellows. The topping is enough for us.

    We had this on Easter with ham. It was very good. A little sweet, but delicious. Would definitely make again.

    These are really good but I do change things up a bit. Instead of the corn flakes I crush up amaretti cookies and add orange marmalade to the sweet potato mix.

    We all enjoyed this for Thanksgiving, but we didn't need nearly as much of the corn flakes mixture as the recipe stated. Half would have done it. Making again!
