My boss' wife always makes these for the annual Christmas party. They are to die for. Better than the kind made with marshmallows IMHO. Thanks, Holly! Note: This recipe can be doubled and placed in one large 9x13 dish but the baking thime also needs to be doubled. Added to OMAC (thanks to the freezer tag game) See freezing and cooking directions at the bottom of instructions.

A few weeks ago I was home all day with a sick child and decided to do an impromptu mini session of OAMC. I had to use what I had, though. And what I had was a lot of sweet potatoes. So I made this and put it in the freezer. Pulled it out on Christmas eve and let it sit in the fridge until Christmas afternoon. Baked it a little longer than said in the directions, as there were still some tiny ice crystals. Some people LOVED it (and had three helpings) and some liked it just fine. So the 4 stars. Easy to make and a nice fast addition to Christmas dinner. Thanks.
