You can easily make the calorie content of this recipe 5x's lower by using splenda instead of sugar (1 Cup of Splenda), use diet mt. dew instead of regular (8oz is plenty) and finally use light butter in replacement of "full" butter. Other than that it's a great yummy easy recipe!!! Enjoy the lighter side!!

We tried these this weekend for our Easter desert. Surprisingly easy & good. I did think they were overly sweet so next time I will cut down to 1 C sugar. I used diet Mt. Dew as that is all I have on hand. I used 1/2 a can & we had plenty of sauce. I cooked them in the oven without any of the sauce for 10 minutes, then added the sugar butter sauce & Mt. Dew. I think this helps keep them from being to doughy on the bottom. Thanks for a good recipe!

Sooooo good!!! I added about a teaspoon of vanilla to the sauce and used red apples as I didnt want them too tart. Be carefull not to burn the sauce as I did with my first batch. Ended up using it for little candies that were great! Very fragrant. Will make this again without a doubt.

I love this recipe. My dad got it from somebody he works with. I have made it with Diet Mt. Dew before to try to cut down some of the calories... but then I add more calories back in by mixing together some powdered sugar and Mt. Dew and making a little icing for the top. So bad for me, but so so SO yummy.

Hubby said it was in his "Top 2" recipes. Got it from The Pioneer Woman website and glad to see it posted here. Delish and will be adding to our regular desserts (not too regularly due to the HIGH calories but I'll try the light version next time)...thanks for posting!
