HELP!! I made this recipe 2 days ago and no one will touch it. The recipe calls for 8 oz. splenda (1 1/2 c.) Or at least that's how it was listed when I printed it out. Problem is, splenda is so light that 8 oz is WAY more than 1 1/2 c. In fact, the big bag I bought is only just over 9 oz. and there has to be at least 8 c. in it. So which is it, 8 oz or 1 1/2 c.? The way it is with only 1 1/2 c. tastes like trying to eat regular baker's chocolate mixed with cream cheese without any sweetener at all. What did I miss?

You know I thought the same thing. I know that if you over do it on the splenda that is all you will taste so I just went with 1 1/2 cups and it still had the taste of splenda so I would have said to just add 1 1/4 cups and test that but you have already made it so what I did was to top it with other stuff like frozen whipped cream SB of course and chopped walnuts or pecans that was very good! good luck

I had issues with the amount of Splenda, too, as I much prefer the taste of Equal but I just made it with a little less than 1 cup of Splenda and it was fantastic. I love Lindt's 86% cocoa chocolate bar so I'm a fan of dark, dark chocolate anyway. When baking you have to know if you're measuring dry ingredients you go by the size of utensil and not actual weight of ingredient. 8 oz of Splenda just means 8 little 1 oz scoops, not 8 oz on a food scale. Good luck with it next time because it's a recipe worth figuring out till you get it the way you like it!

I think in this instance the 8 oz. is representative of 1 cup. Try that and see if it works! Good luck!

Weight loss stalled
Having 200 calories every 2 hours, for eg; like from 8am to 6pm should shake things up abit and hopefully get the ball rolling again.

High carb- Low protein and HUNGRY all the time???
You usually need to eat (at least) every 3 hours on a High carb diet to stop hunger. I find, with high carb dieting grazing is the best system. While with low carb dieting, a set 3 meals a day works ...
