I'm avoiding stars just in case I did something terribly wrong; my experience with this recipe was disheartening, to say the least. A few nights ago I was bored and had all of these ingredients on hand- I, too, was looking to use leftover jam and some applesauce that simply was never going to be eaten. I used Bob's Red Mill gluten-free all-purpose flour- other than that I followed it to a T. Still, it was very off- you could tase the chocolate, but thats it! It wasn't nearly sweet enough. I tried it again with regular flour and 1/2 a cup more sugar and it was just as awful. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I do recommend sweetening it some more- I would almost consider doubling the sugar, but 4 cups is a bit much. I hope others are brave enough to experiment with this, as it is a great idea.
