Coca-Cola Candied Sweet Potatoes

Summary

This dish riffs off of a classic flavor profile that many people think of when they hear "sweet potatoes." Coca-Cola and brown sugar caramelize in the oven, while butter, vanilla and classic spices combine to taste like nostalgia.

What You Need

  • 2 Pounds sweet potatoes chopped into eighths
  • 2 Cups Coca-Cola (less for a drier dish)
  • ½ Teaspoon salt
  • ¼ Teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • ¼ Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 0.13 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cloves
  • 3 Tablespoons butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bring all ingredients except for butter and sweet potatoes to a boil in a large oven-friendly pot. Turn heat down to medium and stir in butter and sweet potatoes. Bring back up to a boil, remove from heat, cover and place in oven and bake for 20 minutes. Remove lid and bake until tender.
