This dish was a hit! I made two types and the other just sadly sat there on the table as this was gobbled up. (Pun intended)

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
This is a great recipe to start or carry on a family tradition, we do it without the marshmallows, you might find it easier to boil the yams whole until the peel is soft enough to rub off with your thumb, then slice at a slight angle to keep enough room for your butter/sugar
