Candied Sweet Potatoes
I took many of the reviews and adapted this recipe for a recent potluck. My co-workers loved this, even people who never before liked yams were asking for the recipe. Even though I reduced much of the brown sugar, this was very sweet. Here is how I modified the recipe. .....
4 pounds of yams,
1/4 cup of butter (salted),
1/2 cup brown sugar,
3 cups of miniature marshmallows, divided,
1/2 tsp vanilla,
1/4 tsp cinnamon,
1/8 tsp nutmeg.
..... Many people claim baked potatoes provide the best taste and texture. So, I baked the cleaned yams for 45 minutes in a 350 F degree oven. After removing the yams and letting them cool, I peeled the yams, and mashed them. Then I folded the marshmallow/sugar mixture into the yams. Once mixed, I placed the mix in a baking dish, let them bake for approx 30 minutes at 350F degrees. After 30 minutes, I placed the mini marshmallows on top of the dish and let bake another 5 minutes. Just long enough for the marshmallows to puff and get a touch golden.
