Alternatively, make candied sweet potatoes by boiling 2 chopped sweet potatoes or cooking them whole in at 350 F until they are soft. Place 1/4 cup of butter and 1/2 cup of packed brown sugar into a skillet, and cook the mixture until it starts bubbling. Pour in 1/4 cup of orange juice, and stir the mixture until it is well-combined. Chop up sweet potatoes if they are still whole, add them to the juice mixture, and cook them on low for about 20 minutes.

Another option is to cook 2 pounds sweet potatoes until they are tender, peel the skin off, cut up the potatoes, and transfer them to a baking dish. Mix 1/4 cup of butter, 1/4 cup of maple syrup, 1/3 cup of packed brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon in a pan, heat the mixture up until it starts boiling, add it to the baking dish with potatoes, and bake everything for 40 minutes at 350 F.
