Did use the dark brown sugar 'cause I like the taste of molasses, & also cut the amount of pepper back to just under 1 teaspoon, which was still plenty for me! Very, very tasty (the sweetness here is just what we like!), & I liked the addition of cinnamon! Definitely on my keeper list!

This was truly inedible with that much pepper! I tried to fix it by doubling all of the other ingredients, and it was still too hot to eat. A friend also disliked it because it was extremely sweet. I had to throw it out!
