Too much brown sugar. Probably need to reduce to 1/2 cup.

Made a small batch for 4 people,without pecans (since I'm allergic) for some bread pudding and added a tablespoon of whiskey! Delish

I was a bit thick, even when I used 3/4 cup of brown sugar. I should have kept it at 1/2 brown sugar to 1/4 butter. Otherwise, the taste was wonderful!!!

Wow great topping drizzled on cheesecake. My friends loved it ! No changes made except added 1 T of vanilla.
