      Hi again! I don't have any toddlers, but I do have 4 grand-kids that have raging sugar munchies. I also have a cat that loves donuts, so I'll have to keep a lid on these! As soon as we experiment, I'll keep you posted. I have Diabetes, so I'm not really supposed to have sugar, but I do cheat once in a while. I'm a baaaaad girl...

      I have made it with half the butter and did not notice a difference in taste. et me know how the truvia works out, we can't use any sort of substitute sugar in our house but I am interested to know how it works. It is a very yummy recipe, after I made the batch for this post I found my toddler on top of the counter eating it at 11pm - I was just glad it wasn't someone breaking in

      Hi, I'm very new to this, but saw your recipe and was drooling! After I wiped the slobber off of my face, I decided that I would print this one and experiment to see if I can exchange Truvia for some of the sugar. I love butter, but may try to see if I can substitute another butter-taste-alike to lower the fat also. I'll let you know of my success so that you can post a reduced calorie recipe with yours. OK?
