Default Splenda ?

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 SPLENDA® 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...aking/main.inc has hints for replacing sugar with Splenda in baking.

Here is the full conversion chart:

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

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