  1.

  2. Transfer prepared sweet potato mixture to a buttered baking dish and set aside.
  3. To prepare crumble topping: In a bowl combine brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, and chopped nuts.  Add butter and continue to combine to make topping.  Sprinkle crumble in one even layer over the top of the sweet potato soufflé.
  4. Lower oven temperature to 350°F. Dot with marshmallows over the crumble top and souffle.  Bake until filling is hot, crumble is browned, and marshmallow tops have turned a golden color, about 20-30 minutes.  Let soufflé cool before serving.
