This side dish is almost like the marshmallow topped ones for Thanksgiving just not whipped. You have to work quickly to add the butter at the end since they are candied they will get hard from the syrup. In other words don’t take them out of the oven walk away and come back to add the butter in a few minutes. Overall they tasted good just didn’t taste the bourbon, but not surprised with only 2 tablespoons. I think if I make this again I’ll drizzle some on top after you add the butter instead of baking it with it.
