I have a candy recipe for peanut butter logs which calls for 3 cups of powdered sugar. This is TOO SWEET. Is there any way to cut the sweetness?

I have used 1 cup of soft fine brown sugar and 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, as a substitute for 3 cups of powdered sugar. It changed the consistency and it worked out fine.
