I always try to weigh verses measure. I didn't like it when HE took out the oz/weights and only started using measurements, it's too easy to get measurements wrong.

Do you think you used enough mini marshmallows. From a package I have 2/3 of a cup equals 30 grams. 1 cup would be 45 grams and 1/2 of that would be 1/2 a cup. By weighing them by grams you might get more marshmallows than just pouring them in a measuring cup.

Only an idea.

These were very good in flavor, just didn't set up right. I am trying to figure out why they didn't. But I will try again as I stated they are very good. BTW the recipe is on page 224 in the book Cooking Healthy with Splenda. Thanks Jan and Heather!

I haven't tried this particular one, I would have to look at the recipe to see what could be the culprit.

However, I have had the not setting up happen to me several times.

Companies change their ingredients and recipes, and then it changes our recipes end results. I have had this happen several times. The Million Dollar Pie from a March Newsletter, I made it many times, and it always came out just right. Then a friend told me her's didn't set up. I was like hmm you must of done something wrong, mine always sits up. Well, I made it a few more times, and it sat up. Then a few months later it didn't sit up and I've never gotten it to sit up again. I plan on trying some other strategies to make it set up. But, all I can think is maybe the Cream Cheese Company decided to change their recipe or something, and I didn't get the "new" version till much later then my friend, since we lived states away. I don't know!

I made these the other day, the recipe out of cooking healthy with splenda. They tasted very good and I followed the recipe exactly but they never set up even though I kept them in the fridge. Has anyone else tried these? They stayed kind of soft. Not sure I would make again. Maybe one of you can give me in put?
