    I followed to the letter, consistency was runny and the texture was crunchy, you could tell granulated sugar was used. I had to thicken with icing sugar and can still feel the granulated sugar in this. The recipe may have been better with icing sugar instead of granulated, the consistency may have been less runny. 😞 - 25 Apr 2015
