chewy sweet potato cookies

Does anyone remember the chewy sweet potato cookies they used to sell years ago at the Jazz Fest? Or maybe they still do, but haven't been in ages (too crowded, too expensive for me). They came individually wrapped in cellophane, and were very chewy, with an almost toffee-like flavor. Tried to replicate that, but seems nearly impossible given they are made with sweet potatoes.
