"This is great with a little tweaking! Definitely cut the sugar by 1/2. It will be plenty sweet. The whipped topping was also too sweet, so I will use my usual recipe for that. The malt flavor could have been stronger for us, so I may double that next time. With all of that being said, I was drawn to this due to the malt powder in it, and it was definitely worth it! Just needed some adjustments for our tastes!"

"Sugar Overload!!

I will make this again, but will definitely cut back on both the chocolate chips and the sugar."
