I want to make the Decadent Fudge Brownies (found in Phase 1 Desserts). Does anybody know how to translate 20-25 packets of Splenda into cups?

Thanks!

Ok, lets see! Each packet is supp to be the sweetness of 2 tsp of sugar and the powdered stuff is supposed to be equal to sugar in amounts so:

2 tsp X 25 packets = 50 tsp

3 tsp per Tbl so 50/3= 16 TBS and 2 tsp

16 Tbs = 1 Cup so use 1 cup plus 2 tsp of the powdered stuff

Hope this helps!

24 packets of SPLENDAŽ No Calorie Sweetener provide the sweetness of one cup of sugar.

This came from Splenda's website. This URL http://www.splenda.com/page.jhtml?id=splenda/cookingbaking/main.inc has hints for replacing sugar with Splenda in baking.

Here is the full conversion chart:

Splenda Conversions
1 C = 16 T = 48 tsp = 24 packets
3/4 C = 12 T = 36 tsp = 18 packets
1/2 C = 8 T = 24 tsp = 12 packets
1/3 C = 5.3T = 16 tsp = 8 packets
1/4 C = 4T = 12 tsp = 6 packets
1/8 C = 2T = 6 tsp = 3 packets
1T = 3 tsp = 1.5 packet

Good stuff, Barb, as usual. I'll post that info in the Cooking Hints section of the Recipes. Thanks.
