Ok, let's make one thing very clear - this is in no way healthy for you. That said, it is to DIE for. We did try to make it a tad lower in sugar by using Splenda in place of the white sugar, and Splenda brown sugar in place of the brown (use half as much as called for). We also didn't use all the marshmallows, maybe only about 2/3rds of what was called for.
