Food Friday: Candied Yams


One of my favorite holiday treats is candied yams. They are so simple to make and are packed with sweet goodness. It is so popular with my family that we enjoy it over Thanksgiving and Christmas. All you need are boiled yams, brown sugar and mini marshmallows. Call me crazy, but I find the brown sugar and gooey marshmallows so delicious, I often eat my candied yams for dessert. For an easy recipe, visit here.

  1. I looooove this dish but I generally use sweet potatoes, and instead of marshmallows, my family uses crumbled pecans, brown sugar, and butter. OMG!

  9. I love candied yams too and yours look delicious. I like to eat them after the turkey/stuffing/veggies/etc. but before dessert. Kind of like my pre-dessert dessert. My sweet tooth is out of control during the holidays, obviously. I also ate my weight in pie this Thanksgiving. I hope you have a great weekend, Marcie!
