MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 29, 2014

"I loved this recipe, and so did my family. However, if you are making for a big crowd, like 10 or more, you might want to double the recipe. Like someone else said, you can even change the color of the food coloring. Overall, it's a great recipe!"

"I'm going to try this, leaving the sugar out. . .There should be plenty of "sweet" with the other ingredients. You could even omit or change the color, as desired."

"Could this be made with Splenda and fat free evaporated milk?

Have special diet needs in family and wondered if anyone has tried it that way."
