Maple Mashed Sweet Potatoes

These potatoes go with the Bacon Rosemary Chicken but they would be a great addition to lots of meals! Super easy, tons of flavor and ready to impress your guests! This recipe is from Cassie Craves.

3 medium or 2 large sweet potatoes (peeled and cubed)
4 tbsp maple syrup (divided)
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp unsalted butter
3 tbsp heavy cream or half and half
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt

Boil the potatoes with 2 tablespoons of maple syrup for 20 minutes. White the potatoes are boiling, melt the remaining ingredients over medium heat in saucepan. Bring to a boil. Continue to cook for 5 minutes to thicken it, stir often. Drain potatoes, return to pan and mash with a potato masher. Slowly add and stir in the maple mixture. Add as much or as little as you like until you get the desired consistency for the potatoes. Serve right away.
