Holiday Open House: Candied Yams

I love the Holiday season.  I love it so much that each year it seems that we start getting into the festivities just a little bit earlier.  My girls and I love decorating, baking, and doing Holiday themed crafts.  I also love to recreate recipes that my mother used to make for us during the holidays.   One that I used to love and plan on sharing with my girls this year is Candied Yams.  In my mind, everything taster better with a sweet side dish to accompany it.  And the best part is, it is so simple to make!  Hope you enjoy!


  • 1 (29 ounce) can sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place sweet potatoes in a medium baking dish. Distribute butter pieces evenly over the sweet potatoes. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Layer with miniature marshmallows.
  3. Cover and bake in the preheated oven 25 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are tender and marshmallows have melted.
Don't this sound delicious?  If you get a chance to try it out, I'd love to hear your feedback. What is your favorite Holiday side dish?   Grab a latte, put up your feet, and join the discussion!
