Slow Cooker Candied Sweet Potatoes

6-7 Sweet Potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tea. Vanilla extract
1 tea. Cinnamon
1/2 tea. Nutmeg
1 tea. Salt
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 cups mini marshmallows
Chopped candied pecans, optional
Spray the inside of the slow cooker. Place sliced sweet potatoes in slow cooker. Wisk together the rest of the ingredients, except the marshmallows and optional pecans. Pour over sweet potatoes. Cook on low 4-6 hours or on high 2-3 hours. Mash sweet potatoes with a hand mixer until smooth right in the Crockpot. Start on low to avoid potatoes coming out of the crockpot. Sprinkle Marshmallows on top. If your crockpot has a removable crock that is oven safe, remove crock and move to an oven on low broil setting. Keeping a close eye on the oven, broil until marshmallows are golden brown and toasty. Move back to the Crockpot base set on warm to serve. Sprinkle with candied Pecan pieces,  if desired, before serving.
