16 packets of Splenda = how much bulk Splenda?

Hi,

I am making peanut butter cups and the recipe calls for 16 packets of Splenda. Does anyone know how much regular pourable Splenda I should use? And does the regular Splenda have more carbs than the packets?

Thank you for your help.



Here is the recipe, I doubled it, added cream and changed the regular butter to unsalted. It is time consuming but not hard.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
Original recipe by Christy824


2 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
2 sticks unsalted butter
16 packets of Splenda
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 Tablespoons of Heavy Cream

Slowly melt all until smooth. Pour half the chocolate mixture into foil lined muffin tins. Freeze for 1 hour.


1 cup of Peanut Butter
4 packets of Splenda

Melt until smooth. Pour over the frozen chocolate. Freeze 1 hour.

After 1 hour use the remaining chocolate mixture to cover the peanut butter. Freeze 1 hour and enjoy. Store the peanut butter cups in the freezer.

Linda's chart is a big help, but I don't think she has the packet to granular ratio on it.
Here is one I made up several years ago:
SPLENDA SUBSTITUTION CHART

Granulated Sugar Splenda packets
2 tsp 1 pkt
1/8 cup 3 pkts.
1/4 cup 6 pkts.
1/3 cup 8 pkts.
˝ cup 12 pkts.
3/4 cup 18 pkts.
1 cup 24 pkts.
1 1/8 cup 27 pkts.
1 1/4 cup 30 pkts.
1 1/3 cup 32 pkts.
1 ˝ cup 36 pkts.
1 3/4 cup 42 pkts.
2 cup 48 pkts.
2 1/8 cup 51 pkts.
2 1/4 cup 54 pkts.
2 ˝ cup 60 pkts.
2 3/4 cup 66 pkts.
3 cup 72 pkts.



SPLENDA CARB COUNT
Granular (equal measure to sugar)
1 cup = 24 carbs
3/4 cup 18 carbs
2/3 cup 16
˝ cup 12
1/3 cup 8
1/4 cup 6
1 Tlbsp 1.5
1 tsp .5

[COLOR=darkred]Packets (1 pkt is equal to 2 tsp sugar or Splenda Granular)
1 pkt = .9 carbs (4 calories)
2 pkt = 1.8
3 pkt = 2.7 [/COLOR]
etc.

One cup of Granular Splenda has 24 carbs,

16 packets is between 1/2 & 3/4 cups equivelant. 16 packets have 14.4 carbs.
