Very good but next time I will try only using half the brown sugar and adding more if I need it. Using a full cup over powered the coconut taste. Read More

This is a good start but it is way too sweet. I will use half the sugar next time and may even go to a white sugar. I think half the brown sugar would be fine but it also turns the sauce brown which is a little strange for coconut sauce. If that does not taste good I will go back to the brown. All of the sweetness takes away from the coconut flavor. Read More

This sauce is really good. I actually served it with chicken breaded in pecan meal and it was delicious. Really sweet so a little goes a long way. Will make again!! Read More

Per the others' reviews, I slowly added the brown sugar as needed. I used the coconut sauce to top the Biko (Pilipino rice-based dessert), also found on Allrecipes, and it was delicious! Thank you for another wonderful recipe, Lola! Read More
