I wanted to make some sweets for my Sweets this Valentine’s Day! I’ve never used SPLENDA® before and thanks to Johnson and Johnson along with TheMotherhood.com I was given the opportunity!
Since I wasn’t sure how to convert SPLENDA® I headed to their website to learn more about how to use it. Guess what, you use the same amount as regular sugar! Bonus! Valentine’s Day makes me think of chocolate so I headed right for their desserts!
SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated can be used almost anywhere sugar is used, including cooking and baking. It measures cup-for-cup like sugar, but contains 678 calories less than sugar on a cup-for-cup basis. One teaspoon of SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated contains the sweetness equivalency of one teaspoon of sugar with no calories or carbohydrates.

After scrolling through their scrumptious desserts and finding something everyone (not just me hahahaha) could enjoy, I decided to try my hand at Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake Cups. You can find the recipe at their site.
I’m not sure where I did something screwy with the recipe, but for some reason, I had a TON of extra crust and filling. lol I think I might’ve gotten the wrong size “mini” cupcake liners. Bonus to the extra is I can make lots more than I had anticipate! Mine were basically bite size pieces. Thank goodness they have less calories! HA!
I’m excited for my date tomorrow. Fred has dinner plans made for us and he’s pretty thrilled with himself about the gift he’s gotten for me. No, he’s not popping the question. lol Whatever it is, he just got it in the mail. I’ve been trying to squeeze it out of him, but he won’t budge.
Well, I’ll be bringing along a container of these and the gift I got him. Last year I made him a gift, but this year I thought I’d get something a bit more “romantic”. He needs to get a hobby to make gift giving a bit easier for me! =)
