Who in the world doesn’t like candied sweet potatoes on Thanksgiving? And why not they are sooo sweet! BUT then I thought this could get even sweeter so I partnered it with some sweet pineapple and BAM! They were so full of sweet goodness OMG I cannot tell you how addictive these are! I’ve made them twice already and the recipe was intended for Thanksgiving LOL! Oh well this will be a staple around the house any time if the year, that’s for certain!
Prepin for some good love!
YES is all I have to say!
