Of course you can adjust to taste but we love it just the way it is =) this is a family recipe that is given out every year at Christmas for sure and through out the year by whoever wants to make it up. We never can keep enough of it and its funny how hard we all try too. We keep thinking we will get tired of it but its a great snake all year round. Enjoy (if serving kids with may want to omit the hot in this recipe, however our kids liked it just fine)
