Bruleed Mashed Sweet Potatoes

This dish is similiar to a creme brulee in the sense that  it has that hard candy topping with sweet creamy potatoes. I added the splenda to the sweet potato mixture because I wanted it sweeter. I only made half the recipe, since 14 servings is a bit much for just me. Not that I mind leftovers, but even 7 servings is a lot for me. Enjoy the recipe for only 2 points if you use the fat free and light ingredients!
