Loaded Candied Sweet Potato Wedges

One of my absolute favorite holiday dishes is candied yams, or sweet potatoes. I love the crunchy nuts with the sweet potatoes, raisins, sauce and of course that toasted marshmallow topping.  Sounds like total and complete "sweet overload", but when you are eating Thanksgiving dinner it is usually full of savory dishes, so it balances out nicely.

We had an unseasonably cool day about 2 weeks ago and it put me in the mood for fall.  It smelled like fall that morning, the grass was wet with dew and the air was crisp. I roasted a chicken and for some reason all of a sudden craved candied sweet potatoes. Instead of making the traditional dish, I decided to make them as potato wedges. I figured it would be something different and fun for my family.  They were a HUGE hit and we have made them twice since.

Here is how to make them:
