Candy is just what they taste like...

Sweet, delicious and best of all, easy to make.

I don't care for marshmallows on my sweet potatoes, but by all means add them...this is my quick way of making them, and my kids just love them this way.

How to Make Ez Pz Candy Potatoes


  1. Peel sweet potatoes and cut into large chunks. Place in a saucepan, add water and bring to a boil. Cover and boil gently until the potatoes are just tender when poked with a fork, do not overcook.
  2. When done, drain the sweet potatoes and place them in a baking dish. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

    Slice butter into thin slabs and place randomly on top of the sweet potatoes, distributing as even as possible. Sprinkle on the cinnamon.
    Then sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the top of the sweet potatoes and butter.

    ( you could also, melt butter, mix in the brown sugar and spread over the potatoes...I have done it both way.)
  3. Place in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 40 minutes. ( about halfway through baking, baste with the sauce in bottom of dish...I do this a few times during baking..

    If using marshmallows; remove from the oven and sprinkle them on top.

    Return to the oven and bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until the marshmallows have puffed up and begun to melt.
