Diet Coke Cupcakes

My two favorite things are Diet Coke & Chocolate. These are also my best friend's favorite things. SO, for her bridal shower this weekend I made her Diet Coke Cupcakes. YES. You read that correctly.  Can I just say genius? I mean really. These are even better for you than normal cupcakes. Unless, you know - you are one of those who think Diet Coke is going to kill us all in 2 years. Anyway.

The recipe for utter bliss is below:


1 box cake mix (chocolate - duh)
1 12oz. can of Diet Coke


Yes, that is it. Instead of putting in the oil and eggs (or whatever else), put in Diet Coke. Simple as that, and that's why it's less calories than normal cupcakes.

The batter tasted like diet coke and chocolate (obvi) and was delicious. I may or may not have licked the spoon 10 too many times.

Once baked these things taste like regular cupcakes (you can't taste the diet coke) making it perfect for your hubs who has an aversion to the stuff.

YUM. Trust me. Just make them. Carrie loved them and I stuck one up her nose.


Well, I'm off to church now! Wanna get your church on, but don't wanna get out of your pi's? Watch it live at 11:15am or 6pm HERE

I am not big on sweets, but these always seem to hit the spot, and they are so easy! Plus, when I did WW, they equaled out to 1pt each... perfect!

Soda cupcakes are the best!

I make these all the time! You can pretty much do it with any cake and soda flavor too. I love lemon cake with lemon/lime soda. So good! These are perfect for dieting and weight watchers with cool whip free on them instead of frosting!
