How to make it

  • Peel and chop the sweet potatoes into 2 1/2-inch pieces (no need for perfect dice).
  • Do NOT boil the sweet potatoes or they will not have a good texture.
  • Heat the oven to 375°F.
  • Place the sweet potatoes into a large buttered casserole dish or glass baking dish.
  • Place pats of butter or margarine on top of the sweet potatoes.
  • Pour the candies in around the sweet potatoes, then sprinkle with the brown sugar.
  • Mix water and vanilla extract, and pour over the top.
  • Bake for about 1 hour 20 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are just tender, stirring halfway through.
  • The candies should be melted and the yams will be a deep red-orange color.
  • Top the yams with marshmallows if desired, and bake for another 10 minutes.
  • Place a cookie sheet on the rack below the yams to cactch any drips from the melting marshmallows.

    " It was excellent "
    duboo ate it and said...
    11-20-2013. Wonderful. When I told my family about the guts of this recipe, they were VERY hesitant. It turned out fabulous. VERY sweet. A few pieces were enough for me, but a couple of my eaters had a lot more. Everyone like it. I really liked the cinnamon taste. It wasn't over-powering at all, it was just there nicely. I did use marshmallows, but I really don't think they were necessary. Definitely will make again, but I'm unsure whether I would make it as a side, or as a desert. It could easily go either place. Maybe serve with ice cream?? I don't know, but there are options! Thanks!
