Step 1: Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into about 1-inch pieces. Place in a large bowl and cover with cold water. Allow soaking for 30 minutes. Drain and use a towel to dry the sweet potatoes thoroughly.
Step 2: Fill a large saucepan with enough vegetable oil to cover the sweet potato pieces and place over medium-high heat.
Step 3: Once the oil has reached about 350 degrees F, add the sweet potato pieces and cook until golden the center is softened, 5-10 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon onto a paper towel lined plate.
Step 4: In a large wok or pan, combine honey, brown sugar, and 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low once it starts to bubble. Toss in the fried sweet potato pieces and continue to cook while gently tossing for 2 minutes.
Step 5: Immediately remove from the pan and transfer to serving plates. Garnish with sesame seeds or chopped nuts.
