Head to the store and pick up marshmallows, butter, cinnamon, and a few other things to make it today. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes roughly 2 hours.
Generously grease a 9x13-inch pan on the bottom and sides. Set to the side.
In a large saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar over low heat.
Once the butter is mostly melted, raise the heat to medium and add the mini marshmallows. Stir frequently until the marshmallows have melted into a marshmallow creme-type mass.
Stir in 2 ounces of pureed yams and spices until evenly distributed. Continue adding more of the yams, bit by bit, until it has reached your desired flavor (go ahead, test it!).
Remove from heat, and stir in the cereal. Stir until the cereal is evenly coated with the marshmallow-yam mixture. Turn out into your greased pan, and using either buttered hands or holding a piece of waxed paper, press the mixture into the pan so that it is firmly packed in (this will make the bars easier to slice and more dense and delicious later).
Let the bars cool for several hours or until they have reached room temperature; slice into bars using a very sharp knife. To keep things from getting messy, keep a moist cloth nearby to clean the knife between cuts.
