Candied Sweet Potatoes

This is my families favorite Sweet Potato dish. Tim loves it and so does the rest of the family. give it a try and let me know what ya’ll think.

 

 

Southern Styled Candied Sweet Potatoes:

4 pounds sweet potatoes, washed,peeled and quartered

1 1/4 cups butter (margarine can be used but the dish will lose some of its creaminess)

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

1 jar marshmallow fluff

ground cinnamon to taste

fresh ground nutmeg to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F  Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add potatoes and boil until slightly underdone, about 15 minutes. Drain, cool and peel.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine margarine, brown sugar, 1/2 jar of marshmallow fluff, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cook, stirring occasionally, until marshmallows are melted.

Stir potatoes into marshmallow sauce. While stirring mash about half of the potatoes, and break the others into bite-sized chunks. Transfer to prepared dish.

Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cover top evenly with remaining marshmallow fluff. Return to oven and bake until marshmallow are golden brown.

 

Hope ya’ll enjoy this as much as my family and I do.
