Top Review by Kagemi

Grew up eating my Mom's candied sweet potatoes and these were very close. Used the brown sugar since I didn't have any maple syrup. Also didn't have any fresh lemons on hand so used the lemon juice that comes in the little plastic squeeze bottles, hence no lemon zest either. Think I should have cooked a little longer to brown the marshmallows more.
