    Do you think I could sub honey for the maple syrup? Maple's SO expensive right now unfortunately. We can't eat sugar in my house and we found really yummy candy made out of honey and arrowroot (thickener) and I wondered how much the consistency would change if I used honey. Perhaps then I'd use a bit more cream? Could you tell me what the consistency is like when you make this recipe so that I have a better way to gauge my alterations? Thanks a bunch! I can't wait to try it! :)
