Cornflake, Pecan and Marshmallow Sweet Potato Casserole

I have a feeling this sweet potato casserole was served in many homes this Thanksgiving, thanks to Pinterest. 

I followed all of the directions and didn't make any changes to the recipe.  My family said it was the best sweet potato casserole recipe we've made to date.  I loved that it had the sweet and fluffy marshmallows along with crunch of the pecans and cornflakes.  I know I will be asked to make this one from here on out and have no desire to search for another sweet potato recipe. Enjoy!
