This is an awesome recipe & I usually like to follow what the ingredients call for & not alter it but..... I have had this recipe where I thought I was eating a mouthful of brown sugar - I use 1/4 cup of packed brown sugar & make sure you let it set overnight - it softens the sugar where it is not so gritty. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!
DO NOT SKIP THE TOPPING!!! It is what makes this so addictive. I have substituted different nuts like walnuts and hazelnuts. Just be sure they are toasted first to get the best flavor. I don't think I've ever chilled it overnight, but it tastes better the first day of making it than the next IMO. I also don't mix in the topping until I'm ready to serve it. It's perfect for BBQs.
This was a hit at my company potluck. Everyone wants the recipe and this was the only empty dish at the end of lunch. I used low fat sour cream, low fat cream cheese and sugar substitues (white and brown). I also put the topping on the side so everyone could have some, not just the people who got to the bowl 1st. I will make this again and again.
Addictive!!!<br/>Made this for Christmas...And I am still craving it! I am going to attempt a low fat lower sugar version with nonfat Cream cheese and sour cream and splenda or truvia.<br/>I also used chopped pretzel sticks in the topping instead of nuts. But I would suggest adding as it is served or the pretzels get yucky. <br/>You can't go wrong with this...It is delicious, light, and refreshing AND addictive.
