First up, our Scottish sweetheart, Emma, and her Marshmallow Candied Sweet Potato Yams!
6-8 medium-sized sweet potatoes
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 to 3 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup melted butter, plus 2 tbsp. melted butter
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 cup pecan chips
Slice sweet potatoes into 1/4 inch round slices. Arrange potatoes in a lightly greased baking dish (approx. 13”x9”x2”).
Mix brown sugar, cinnamon, and pecans in a bowl. Sprinkle each layer of potatoes with the mixture. Pour 3/4 cup melted butter over potatoes evenly. Cover and bake at 375°F for 30 minutes.
Remove, and baste with remaining 1/4 cup butter. Cover and continue baking for 30 minutes. (If transporting your dish, stop here and continue the last step at your destination – warm 5-10 minutes in oven before adding marshmallows).
Remove, sprinkle marshmallows evenly on top and continue baking without cover for 5 minutes.
