These are the best sweet potatoes and so easy to make too. I used canned sweet potatoes to cut the prep time down.

This was totally awesome and a major hit!!! I made it for Christmas dinner, but we ended up eating it as a dessert. I added a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg to give it a little more kick. We are not big sweet potato fans, but I will definitely make them like this again. Thanks for posting.
