Kentucky Sweet Potato Pie

Sweet Potato Pie

Aside from dessert, my favorite food on the Thanksgiving table is the sweet potatoes.  And that’s probably because it’s basically a dessert that’s served with dinner. My mom’s sweet potatoes are always topped with cherries, pineapple rings, and plenty of marshmallows. Just how I like ’em!

Mine has always been Eagle Brand’s Foolproof Chocolate Fudge.  Now, I don’t believe in the word “foolproof” as I’ve been known to mess up “foolproof” recipes or projects, but this fudge just always works.  It takes no time at all to make, and then you just throw it in the fridge and you’re done. You don’t even have to turn on the oven! Continue Reading
