Very yummy sweet potato dish. Very sweet, so add less sugar if you like things a little less sweet. Not a low cal or low fat dish.

Are you making this? 
2 cups Pretzel Rods; chopped
1 cup Pecans; chopped
1 cup Craisins; rehydrated, see note
3/4 cup Brown sugar; packed
1 cup Butter; melted and divided
4 pounds Sweet Potatoes; Peeled, cubed and cooked
5 ounce Evaporated milk
1/4 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla; pure, not imitation

Original recipe makes 12 Servings



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In large bowl, combine pretzels, pecans, dried cranberries, brown sugar and 1/2 cup butter; set aside.

In another large bowl, beat sweet potatoes until smooth. Add milk, sugar, vanilla and remaining butter; beat until well blended.

Spoon in to large shallow baking dish (10 x 13)*. Sprinkle with pretzel mixture. Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes until the edges are bubbly.

*Alternatively, if you have a crockpot with a removable pot, potatoes can be placed in pot, add topping bake in oven until top is crunchy. Place crock back in Crockpot base and keep warm until time to eat. Great when you need the oven space.


To rehydrate dried cranberries cover in hot water for 15-20 minutes and drain.

As a twist of flavor rehydrate cranberries in Orange juice. Strain reserving the juice and whipped the juice into the potatoes. Adjust the amount of melted butter and/or milk equally.
