Christmas is at my sister’s house this year.  Actually, it’s been at her house for the past couple of years.  She’s decided that Christmas is her holiday and she goes all out with elaborate decorations and gifts galore.  Christmas at her house reminds me a lot of Christmases of past at my grandparent’s house with the festive atmosphere.  Everyone brings a dish and we all sit around eating and drinking and laughing.  I’m definitely bringing my grandma’s candied yams this year.  I talked about this recipe around Thanksgiving time, but thought I’d share it with you again because they’re that good.  Let me know if you try them and what you think!

Grandma’s Candied Yams

Ingredients:

  • 32oz. can of sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1/2 cup of pecans (or walnuts- your pick)
  • 7 or 8 large marshmallows cut in half

Directions:

The first thing you want to do is preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  Open and drain the sweet potatoes and then cut them into quarters. Put sweet potatoes in a glass casserole dish and crumble brown sugar over all of it. Cut slices of butter and dot over mixture.  The more butter, the yummier. Sprinkle all of this with nuts and then top with marshmallow and make for 20 minutes.  For extra gooey candied yams, put a few more marshmallows on top and bake for another 10 minutes or until the marshmallow starts to brown.
