This is a great side dish and so yummy, it could also double as a dessert: the product of an accident gone good, very good.- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - I borrowed from several candied yam recipes to come up with a quick and easy version. Then I inadvertently skipped a step toward the end - adding the marshmallows & baking along w/all the other ingredients (instead of waiting for the last 10 minutes like most recipes specify).- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - My "mistake" actually made the final product look and taste even better than I had planned! First time I haven't brought yams back home from a family gathering - when I went to gather up my leftovers, they were all gone!- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - I'll be adding the marshmallows up front "accidentally, on purpose" from now on. :) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Caution! The baking dish and its contents will still be very hot even after sitting to cool! Enjoy!- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Tip: when removing from oven, if you can see unmelted candies or brown sugar on the sides or bottom of your baking dish, or would prefer a thicker syrup, leave in oven for the longer time; and/or after removing from oven, transfer baking dish only to the microwave and cook on high for 30-60 seconds at a time until desired melting/thickness of syrup.
