Have you seen the recipe on Pinterest for Diet Coke Brownies? I wondered if it actually worked.
Pour brownie mix in bowl and mix with a Diet Coke. Pour in pan and bake.
It seemed too simple. So, what better to do on a cold, rainy evening? Bake brownies!
I followed the directions on the website, with a slight alteration. We had one caffeine-free Diet Coke in the fridge leftover from a party a while back.
The baking time on the back of the box says 25-30 minutes. Because these were pretty soupy when I first poured them into the pan, I baked them for 35 minutes.
The results? Well, they weren’t pretty ~ definitely not show-stoppers. The problem was that I found them difficult to cut neatly. BUT.
I found them to be very tasty! My children loved them! And my husband was just happy that I made dessert!
I also altered from the prescribed recipe upon cutting these. Because they were so messy, I didn’t even attempt to cut them into 24 pieces. Going by the calories listed on the brownie box and dividing it by 16 (the number of brownies I cut.) These moist and wonderful brownies are about 137 calories each. Yummy!
