Recipe by TheEnvyOfKings
"I took my mom's childhood candied yam recipe and added a layer of caramel. It is now a must at every Thanksgiving and Christmas and is often requested with much anticipation by anyone who has had it. One recipe will serve 6, but barely. I promise there won't be leftovers. If you're going to feed 6 or more, I suggest doubling the recipe in a 9x13-inch pan."

Delicious My husband loved it his co-workers and friend and also my co-workers loved it. It was my first time making it and I thought it would be weird to mix pineapples and caramel with sweet potatoes but it turned out outstanding I will most definitely make this again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Not so sure about this one. Maybe the fact that I used fresh yams, cut them into chunks and parboiled rather than mashing them was the deal breaker but there was something missing from the flavor. I did everything else the same except I doubled the the recipe. Just not sure what happened but I'll stick to my original yam casserole. All the posters loved this so maybe it was just us.
I wanted to do something different with the same ol' candy yams so i tried this recipe and it was wonderful!! Normally i have a lot left over but not this time!! Every bit was gone!! I will continue to make this every holiday!
Found this recipe a few weeks back. I decided to make the carmel from sweetened condensed milk. WWWWOOOWWWW WAS THIS YUMMY The carmel gave one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving even More flavor!! This is a Keeper! Thank you Envy
Won't make it any other way now. Bravo!
I love trying new recipes! This was wonderful. I used whole sweet potatoes, peeled, boiled and mashed them, and added all other ingredients. This was perfect! I went right by the recipe but made one adjustment that my husband just loves on his sweet potato casseroles. I added a pecan topping in with the marshmallows. My husband tells me all the time that I am a wonderful cook. Last night, he told me that I normally make a delicious sweet potato casserole, but this one topped it all!!!!!!!! Thanks for sharing your creation. It was GREAT!!!!!
Absolutely delicious! Will make this part of all holiday meals!
