      I made this recipe before heading out, so it would be ready when I got home later with some guests. I cooked it on high in the crock pot for an hour, then turned it to low. Before I left (about an hour into the low temp), it tasted AMAZING! I left it on low while I was out for 4 more hours, since the recipe suggested 4-8 hours on low.

      This was really an awesome recipe, I had to quickly make another batch in the middle of my party because it was gone. I will be making this for my fall and winter holidays coming up! Thanks!

      When the weather cools, this is a requested holiday treat at our house. I only use 1/2 cup sugar, and don't use any alcohol either. Thanks for posting this most delicious recipe!
