We had a party for labor day this past weekend and I was inspired to make something sweet from my friend Anat. She had made black bean brownies and they were awesome so I wanted to modify a sweet item. I decided on a weight watchers trick. I combined diet cream soda (1 can) with boxed red velvet cake mix. I put it into 24 muffin tins and baked them according to the package directions. They were done in about 20 minutes. After they cooled I topped them with whipped cream cheese icing. While these are not the healthiest treats they are better than typical cupcakes and they got rave reviews! My husband is already requesting me to make them again!
