I loved it! My hubby also loved it--and he is definitely not a sweets-kinda person. I appreciated the tips from previous reviewers, too. I used 4 large yams. I cut them up, placed them in a large bowl and microwaved them for about 20-25 minutes, stopping every once in a while to check their mushiness. Once I was able to easily mash them, I then added cinnamon and a touch of pumpkin spice seasoning (the Trader Joe's spice jar I have literally says "Pumpkin Pie Spice", and it contains cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and cardamom). I also added a dash of vanilla (real vanilla--not artificial). I stirred the cinnamon, pumpkin spice, vanilla and brown sugar into the yams. Then I placed the yams in my baking dish and topped it with chopped up butter. I thoroughly covered my baking dish with aluminum foil to ensure the marshmallows wouldn't get cemented into the pan, as advised by a previous reviewer. I also used Pam oil spray to spray the aluminum foil that covered the candied yams so that the marshmallows eouldn't stick to it. I baked it covered for 25 minutes, then uncovered it, added more marshmallows, and baked it again for 5 minutes to let the marshmallows toast to a golden brown. Toasting this way really was like toasting them over a campfire, as a previous reviewer mentioned. This was my first time making candied yams, and I didn't expect it to turn out right, but it turned out amazingly delicious ! It was a pan full of golden, gooey yumminess!
