Being a diabetic, I have to watch my sugar intake carefully. A good friend was sharing this recipe using "high" sugar and "high" caffine content. I saw the recipe as an easy way to modify both and have a delicious dessert that appeals to the entire family. Only two ingredients are changed to make it a diabetic, caffine free dessert.
