Way too much sugar!! I love buckeyes and had not made them in a long time and they look beautiful, but man you get a toothache from the amount of sugar! Although if you like fudge this recipe may be for you. I read another review saying the same thing but I like to follow the recipe as given the first time. If you love super sweet stuff this recipe is for you - if not at a very minimum the sugar has to be much less. I can't say for sure how much since the ratio of dry to liquid/solid would be thrown off. I found that I didn't really need to put a toothpick in each I just used a shallow bowl and used tongs to hold them while covering the bottoms of the buckeyes. Oh yeah, you actually need the heat from your hands to roll the balls or they will just fall apart - I squeezed them at least 3-5 times before starting to roll them into a ball and they rolled very smoothly after that. Also it is VERY hands on....I am not sure I will eat these made by someone else again...LOL
