    Followed directions exactly. No one was impressed. Had to throw most of it out.

    Did not enjoy. I made it for My family for Thanksgiving (20 people) and most of it remained. Won’t make again.

    These were a big hit at our game! I made a dish with nuts and without. It was easy. Transported easily and gobbled up. I will definitely make them again!

    It was good! Used maple whiskey we had on hand. Yummy! I gave it 4 stars bc I cooked it about 10 minutes longer then the recipe and you could tell the top was done but it never bubbled and you could still taste the booze. Could have put a splash to much, I had an extra potato in there I was trying to measure for. Also, I didn’t mess with cutting and boiling, just baked in foil until soft and then put them in the bowl and followed the recipe from there. Will make it again!

    Made with Jameson whiskey and without nuts. Delicious!!!
    I made them into yams, because I’m not a fan of mashed sweet potatoes. I made a batch with Jack and without and both were incredible!

    Was a huge hit. My uncles step mom (80+ years old) said they were the best she’s had in her life (a long time). Everyone wanted to know how I made them and loved the whiskey idea. Augmentations I made: I did part honey whiskey and part regular jack. When I boiled the sweet potatoes, I put cinnamon and nutmeg in the water. I toasted some pumpkin seeds instead, bc they were all I had worked great!
