Precook your sweet potatoes in a large pan of water on stove, until they are softened, but still firm. Cool in cold water. Peel and slice lengthwise. Put about 1/4 stick of butter or margarine in a large frying pan. On low, melt butter and sprinkle about 1/4 cup of brown sugar over butter. Add slices of sweet potatoes in single layer. Fry until they start to caramelize, turn over and caramelize the other side. I usually have to do this 2 or 3 times until I have all my potatoes fried. Then place in an oven-proof bowl or Dutch Oven. Place marshmallows over top, and bake uncovered at 350 degrees until marshmallows start to brown. Serve.
