"this is perfect as is, but also forgiving of a few tweaks- I make this often, and usually double the batch."

"I Just made this by cutting the recipe in half because it was way to much for my family. It turned out awful. It is way to sweet. I am very disappointed. Looks like I'll be feeding the birds."

"I just didn't care for this. Too sweet I think for me. I took it on a summer vacation hoping everyone would love it, but I ended up being stuck with most of it when I got home."

"I have made this for weddings, receptions, Christmas gifts- it's a winner. Sometimes I add about 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper to ad a mild zip. Sometimes I add in craisens and crispy baked peas for crunch and Christmas colors. I have been asked for this recipe each time I serve it"

"This is such a beautiful treat for a party, it gets made often in our house. We tend to triple the recipe, as it has a habit of vanishing way too fast. It's a keeper, for sure."
