Wow, wow, wow, wow, W-O-W!!!!!!!!!!!! There really are not very many words to describe how incredibly awesome this casserole was! It's a side-dish and dessert all in one!
I've always been a huge sweet potato fan, but man oh MAN! This was seriously delicious! I'm not gonna lie, this is not lo-cal! LOL Not at all, but who's counting calories when they're setting out to make a DECADENT Sweet Potato Casserole?!!!
Personally, I feel this casserole tasted better warm, not hot. When it was hot, it really took away from the flavor. As it cooled a little bit, it tasted JUST RIGHT! :)
Don't forget about Ginger's take on Sweet Potatoes from Crock Pot Recipe Exchange. Her Slow Cooking Through the Holidays Crock Pot Sweet Potato Casserole can be found here. It looks seriously delicious as well!
Decadent Sweet Potato Casserole
2 apples, peeled, cored, sliced and chopped
4-5 Medium Sweet Potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 stick butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cups (about) Mimi Marshmallows
Place your apples in a bowl.
Add your sweet potatoes to that.
Next, mix together the vanilla, melted butter and brown sugar.
Sprinkle the cinnamon onto the sweet potatoes and apples.
Pour your butter/vanilla/brown sugar mixture over your sweet potatoes and apples and mix.
Dump them into your Crock.
Cook on LOW for 8-10 hours or on HIGH for 4-5 hours.
About 1-1 1/2 hours before serving, Turn your slow cooker to HIGH, take 3-4 paper towels and stick them underneath the lid of your slow cooker.
This will help absorb a lot of the moisture and thicken your casserole.
About 5 minutes before serving, add your marshmallows to the top.
