Recipe: Candied Yams

**I'm so excited to announce that I've started a youtube channel discussing everything home making. My channel name is Surviving As Mom.  Check it out!! http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmrj6ilyMI5G2hnraXRWpEQ


Candied Sweet potatoes topped with brown sugar, oatmeal and marshmallows.  Easy and DELICIOUS!!

4 large sweet potatoes/yams roasted and peeled (you could probably boil them too)
1 stick soft butter
2-3 tbsp brown sugar (to taste)
salt and pepper to taste

TOPPING:
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/4 whole raw oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsps melted butter
*Combine above ingredients to a crumbly mixture.

about 1 cup small marshmallows

DIRECTIONS:
Mash sweet potatoes till smooth.  Add butter, brown sugar, salt and pepper.
Spread them out in a small glass baking dish.  I used a Pyrex 7x11 in. dish
Sprinkle half of topping (not marshmallows) over top.  Use a butter knife to mix just slightly.
Add the rest of topping and bake at 375 degrees about 35 mins.
Add marshmallows and return to oven about 10-15 mins until marshmallows are golden brown.

That's it!  Very easy and SOO delicious!!
