Slow Cooker Candied Sweet Potatoes
I am so excited to start sharing Thanksgiving recipes that can be made in the crockpot! You all know how much we love making anything and everything we possibly can with the crock pot.
I love that I can set up dinner or our side dishes during the day and they are hot and ready when John gets home from work.
One thing about being a Park Ranger is you never know if you are going to get out of work when you expect to. There always seems to be something coming up that causes John to be late from work.
By using the crockpot I know that dinner is hot when he does get home. Plus it is just so easy! And we all know how much I love easy recipes.
Ingredients for Crock Pot Candied Yams
- Sweet potatoes
- Sugar substitute
Sweet potatoes will be really tender when they are done cooking. I had to use tongs with plastic covers to gently remove them from the crock pot. They taste so good!
Kitchen Tongs - We highly suggest getting a good pair of kitchen tongs to remove the sweet potatoes and save your hands from getting burned.
Crockpot - We suggest using a crockpot that has a digital timer that automatically switches the slow cooker to warm after a set amount of time.

I love sweet potatoes! Especially if they are candied!
I have been searching for more ways to make sweet potatoes. My Mom mom only ever only made them one way so I am trying to be a bit more adventurous. Will be adding this to our menu rotation.
Sweet potatoes are something we usually only eat around Thanksgiving. Really should incorporate it more - they are so healthy for you.
That sounds really good. I wonder if I could substitute stevia for the equal?
This is the kind of recipe I love. I just want to set it and forget it, you know?
