I know splenda makes sugar for baking... I would assume that would work. Wouldn't hurt to try it anyway!

That's one of my favorite sweet treats!! I do this all the time! I use splenda, never tried it with anything else though.

 

It's good IMO, but it isn't really anywhere near a regular meringue. It's soft and squishy... kind of firm but sort of gooey. The outside gets crisp but I can't get the inside any crisper without the outside turning black lol.

 

So I'd at least give it a shot! Don't expect it to taste like a real meringue though haha.


Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

I do this all the time! Love it! I use splenda.

 

IMO it's really good but it's really nothing like a regular meringue lol. The outside is a little crisp, but the middle is soft and squishy. I can't get the inside any firmer without totally burning the outisde though! but I like it!

 

I'd say give it a shot! Just use one egg white the first time to try it out, and if you like it make more :)
