These are great for a holiday get together or any time. I prefer to use the dark Karo syrup over the light, but either one can be used. Very sweet and good!


  • 6 medium yams or 2 (17 oz.) cans
  • 1/2 cup Karo syrup (dark or light)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 2 Tbsp. margarine
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon


Arrange yams in single layer in 9x13 inch baking dish. In heavy 2 qt. saucepan combine remaining ingredients. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil. Pour over yams and bake in 325 degree F oven for 30 minutes, basting frequently.

I saw a recipe for Candy Yams here not too long ago, I didn't have time to copy it at the time. Would someone please repost it?
Thank you.

  • 1- 24 oz. can yams (Bruce's)
  • 1 Tbsp. margarine
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar and/or maple syrup
  • 1 cup small marshmallows


Open a can of Bruce's Yams into a 1 1/2 qt. casserole dish. Add margarine, brown sugar and or maple syrup, then top with small marshmallows. Bake in 325 degree F oven for 30 minutes.

I'm typing this with my memory. I might be wrong about the brown sugar amount and even the oven temperature. You can also check the Web and type in Google for the recipe you're looking for.
