I did not like this recipe, I thought it was too sweet, but some other people in my family loved it. If you like a real sweet, caramel flavor, then you'll like this.

If I could give this recipe no stars, I would. I did not care for this recipe. this was way too sweet, an awful consistency! I went against my better judgment and decided to make it even after reading the reviews. Don't do it!

I was looking for something that was easy and didn't seem to sweet. This was excellant on chocolate cake.
