    The old version has tea in it. I'm guessing she forgot it.

    THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO MAKE THIS RECIPE SUGAR-FREE; I HAVE THE OLD VERSION, AND HATE ALL THAT SUGAR! THIS IS YUMMY AND OH SO COMFORTING, AND BETTER FOR YOU THAN THE OLD RECIPE.

    Your working with sugar free and the teaspoons is correct.

    Should this recipe be in cups instead of teaspoons with the teaspoon measurements for a serving? [email protected]
