Seet's Yummy Candied Yams or Sweet Potatoes

Total Time

I created this recipe for my lovely husband (who I call Seets) after looking at several other recipes and not finding any that were close to what his Grandmother makes. He loves these, and hopefully you do too.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Drain the yams.
  3. In a shallow baking dish mash one can of yams and leave the other can of yams in pieces (This is more of a personal preferance, you can leave both cans in pieces if you wish).
  4. Pour orange juice over the yams.
  5. Sprinkle on brown sugar and cinnamon.
  6. Dot with butter or margarine.
  7. Top the yams with marshmallows.
  8. Bake 30 minutes or until marshmallows have melted.
  9. Be sure to watch the yams the last 5 minutes because the marshmellows can burn.

It was an easy recipe to follow but it just wasn't sweet enough for us. Next time I might add a touch of sugar or more brown sugar.
