Original recipe yields 8 servings
- Place the sweet potatoes into a large saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook over medium heat until tender, about 25 minutes. Drain water, and place potatoes in a large casserole dish.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- In a medium bowl, stir together the butter, brown sugar, red hot candies, and water. Pour over the sweet potatoes in the dish.
- Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, until sweet potatoes are soft, and the candies are melted. After this, you may top with marshmallows, and return the dish to the oven for 10 minutes to toast them.

"I made this for my office Thanksgiving Day dinner. I was very nervous since no one had ever heard of using the cinnamon candies in the recipie. It was the hit. People went back for seconds and thirds...." See more I had several people ask for the recipie. I'm making it again for our own dinner...."
