"These are amazing! I made them the other night for a group get-together, making no changes at all to the recipe. They were so good that I'm making them again this Sunday for a Super Bowl party. Try them -- you'll love them!"
"loved this recipe and did not need syrup -sweet enough with brown sugar"
"these are amazing! and definitely no syrup needed"
"Delicious! I also agree, no need for syrup. I did however use a Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing packet to make a Ranch Dipping Sauce, and the combination of Ranch dressing with the sweet, and salty sweet potato bites was really good! ;)"
"Everyone loved these! I agree, no need for the syrup. I did cut the bacon in thirds to accomodate the amount of potatoes. I must have gotten thicker cut bacon or something."
