8 Sweet Potatoes, washed, peeled and sliced
2 T. Salted Butter, cut into small cubes
1/2 c. Orange or Pineapple juice
1 tsp. Maple Syrup
2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 tsp. Pumpkin Pie spice
1/2 c. Brown Sugar
1/2 c. mini marshmallows

I can guarantee you that your vegetable-frowning children will gobble up Slow Cooker Candied Yams.  Sweet and savory all in one dish.  Can you say yum?!

  1. Grease a 4-5 qt. slow cooker with non-stick spray.
  2. Slice sweet potatoes, and layer inside slow cooker with butter pieces scattered between layers.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the orange or pineapple juice, maple syrup, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and brown sugar.
  4. Pour the sugar sauce over the potatoes in the slow cooker.
  5. Cover and cook on LOW 6-7 hours or until potatoes reach desired tenderness.
  6. Top with marshmallows.
  7. If your slow cooker insert is oven-proof, remove stoneware and place in oven for a few minutes to melt/toast marshmallow topping. (You can also move potatoes to a casserole dish and set under the broiler to brown.)

Happy Crocking!

I just tried this recipe and I think I hit a glitch with the “8 sweet potatoes.” How much should they weigh? I have a 6 qt. slow cooker and it couldn’t hold everything which made me worry I don’t have enough liquid. I’ll find out if the morning.

Hi Jen!
I am wondering how many this would serve? And also, could I add pecans for the entire cooking time?
