Take a break and let your Crock-Pot do some work this Thanksgiving.


Cooking spray

4 lb. sweet potatoes, peeled and finely diced

4 tbsp. melted butter

2 c. packed brown sugar

1/4 c. water

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Pinch kosher salt

1 1/2 c. mini marshmallows

1/2 c. whole pecans


Grease Crock-Pot with cooking spray and place sweet potatoes in slow cooker.

In a medium bowl, combine butter, sugar, water, cinnamon, vanilla, and a pinch of salt. Whisk to combine. Pour over sweet potatoes and toss until they are fully coated. Cook on high for 4 hours, stirring every hour. Remove lid and top with marshmallows and pecans. Reduce heat to low and cover. Cook on high about 10 minutes more or until marshmallows are melted.
