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!

    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.

    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.
