I would definitely double this recipe so that there is enough for everyone. This would be good as a side dish for Thanksgiving or whenever you crave a sweet treat. Marshmallows over sweet potatoes and yams are the best. With very few ingredients and being easy to prepare, this dish would be great anytime.
