Spiced Loaded Sweet Potatoes

Loaded is putting it mildly! These sweet taters combine with brown sugar, butter, Frangelico, eggs, pecans, vanilla, and our Salted Coffee Rub to create a side dish that should serve 6-8 people. Of course, first it has to make it to the table, so be sure you don’t eat it all before your guests arrive.
