Spring baking - Lighter baking

  Chocolate Dream Mousse and Chocolate Chip Cheesecake
Spring is the season for a fresh start. Why not give your traditional baking recipes and sugary desserts a "make-over"? When you're looking for great tasting treats with less sugar that your family can bake together, try a new baking blend.

This combination of sugar and sucralose, a sweetener that is 600 times sweeter than sugar, can be used like sugar in cookies, cakes, mousses and desserts of all kinds. When you use 1/2 cup of the new baking blend in place of 1 cup sugar, you will have results that have the same sweetness as a full sugar recipe as well as great texture and taste. Yet, you'll have fewer calories and carbohydrates and often a "lighter" nutritional profile.

Now that sweet treats can be prepared with less sugar, your family can happily make and enjoy the desserts they love. Get your kids in the kitchen to learn a new way to make cookies and other goodies with a Splenda delicious touch.
