Ridiculously Bad For You Caramel Yams

Print Email

6 Yams, scrubbed and pierced with a fork several times

1 stick of butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon salt

Bake the yams in the oven at 375°F for 40-45 minutes or until they are soft thru and thru.  Its important that you bake them to bring out the natural sugars more. When they are done, let them cool and then the skin comes off easily. Mash them in a 13 x 9 baking dish and set aside.

In a saucepan, over low heat, melt the butter and brown sugar whisking to make sure nothing crystallizes on the sides of the pan.  When the mixture is no longer grainy, add the cream and salt and stir until well incorporated.  Pour this over the top of the yams. Spread evenly. Top with single layer of marshmellows and bake for about 25 minutes or less at 350°F until top is brown and melted.
