Candied Sweet Potatoes always made an appearance at Thanksgiving and usually for Chritmas at our house growing up. A easy side dish that may be made a couple of days a head and reheated for the "Big Event".

  2. Heat remaining ingredients, except pecans, in 10-inch skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and bubbly. Add potatoes. Gently stir until glazed and hot. Add pecans and serve.
