    twissis's Note:

    Red hot cinnamon candies have been 1 of my favorite ingredients since my childhood & this is the 1st of 2 recipes I'm entering that feature them. I found this at & it was posted by SMTHJG who said "My grandmother used to make this simple sweet-spicy dish every yr for the holidays. It's so delicious that you'll want to make it all yr." I agree w/her & hope you will as well. Just imagine this dish along side a lovely glazed ham! Yum!

      These are good, but maybe just a little too sweet for us. I only had 1 cup of cinnamon candies so that was all I used and they were still really sweet. Next time I will cut down on the sugar or maybe the candies. Just a note: We ate leftover potatoes a couple of days later and they did not seem quite as sweet after reheating.

      These were really good. I had a ham already in the oven so this worked out perfectly. Everything was done at the same time. I loved the cinnamon flavor of the yams. Thank you for this great recipe.

      Oh Twis...these are tasty. I knew I would like them being a huge sweet potato fan and the cinnamon candies were such an interesting twist. I ate them with a ham steak for dinner and then had another serving for dessert! I think I might toss some toasted pecans in with my leftover potatoes. Thanks for the fun treat.
