The texture of Splenda is more granular I think if you processed it in a blender or food processor to a fine powder it might work.  The powdered sugar has a bit of cornstarch added to prevent clumping so you might want to add a bit of that as well to help process easier.
Not sure on measuring, if the recipe calls for 2 Cups powdered sugar and you processed 2 Cups of Splenda the result will be under 2 cups since the grains are finer.  So you may want to process then measure.
Is there a web site or phone number you can call and ask?
Good luck.

Hi Pam, I made a no bake cheesecake with it and I didn't care for it. I use Splenda mainly for hot and cold beverages.I also like it sprinkled on fresh fruit like strawberries.

I've used a couple Splenda recipes and one sugar-sub chocolate chip cookies recipe ..... I don't like them but the friend I give them to does ask for more.  I believe that she is being sincere about enjoying them and not just trying to be nice.

Have never used it in baking.  Always use powdered sugar.  If you do use it, let us know what you think.  Thanks.

Gale,
 I looked this up as a favor for a neighbor who has a husband & a son that are diabetics. I kept the recipe in case it was needed again. I do not know if she made the recipe yet.

My husband tried to make something with Splenda.   He is Diabetic & was trying for fudge.  It was not a good result.
