It's safe to say that this little gal has the biggest sweet tooth you can imagine.
But... at the same time, I also like to eat a healthy diet, so I'm constantly looking for low-fat ways to satisfy my chocolate cravings.
Well bloggies, this is a great way to do it.
Introducing le Diet Coke brownies:
You may have heard of these babies before.
I will say that I know that the aspartame in diet sodas is awful for your body, but personally, I don't think that one can of Diet Coke in a large batch of brownies would do much harm! I may eat my words, but I'd rather have a fraction of aspartame in my system than all of the fat & calories in full-fat brownies! ...and it's not like I eat brownies on a daily basis, so...
...back to the recipe.
Seriously, this is my kind of baking because I'm quite the "undomesticated goddess."
All you do is put your choice of brownie mix in a bowl, empty in a can of Diet Coke, then stir away.
That's it! No eggs, water, etc.
From this point, just follow the baking directions on the back of the box to find out how long you should leave them in the oven.
I've heard that you can mix fat-free Cool Whip and sugar-free dry pudding mix together to create a frosting.
I prefer to take a warm brownie and a scoop of sugar-free vanilla ice cream (or frozen yogurt!) ...then add a tiny bit of chocolate syrup (come on, that's a must!).
They aren't quite as fudge-like as full fat brownies, but you can't really tell if you eat them with ice cream!
Have you tried these before?
