"Like another reviewer, I thought this too sweet, almost sickeningly so. I added a little salt (okay, a lot of salt!) to balance out the sweetness. It turned out really good after that."

"Loved this. We were looking for it to be sweet, but I used about 8oz of melted white chocolate chips instead of the candy coating."

"Far too sweet.I think had peanut butter chips had been substituted for half of the white candy coating, it might have been ok.No one seemed to care for it."
