I don't quite recall what I said earlier but I think (upon further reflection) that when you've put in too much sugar, too much salt, too much hot sauce or too much anything else, you should just toss it and make a note to not do that again.
Another good thing to keep in mind is to not make too big a batch when you're trying a new recipe. It's one thing to have your dinner spoiled and quite another thing to have a major investment in several or dozens of meals gambled on whether you like a recipe or not.
And also, it's a good idea to have some familiarity with similar recipes before trying one. It appears the OP had a flawed recipe (specifying too much sugar) and perhaps comparison with other similar recipes would have made the excessive sugar amount obvious.
