Guilt Free Cupcakes With Secret Ingredient….

30 Apr

We were having company in town this weekend and I didn’t want to starve them out on my Hunger Games Diet, so I went hunting for a low-calorie, low-fat dessert alternative and this is what I found, Diet Sprite Funfetti cupcakes.

This is an instance where the name truly says it all cause the only two ingredients in these little fellows are Funfetti cake mix and diet Sprite…ahhh..the secret ingredient.

You dump your  box of cake mix in a bowl and add about 10 ounces of diet Sprite, stir it up and bake it.

I was a bit hesitant about this deal until I tried it, but they are actually very good. They have a lightly chewy brownie consistency and didn’t have the dietey taste I expected from the Sprite. They also taste a little like cake batter, which I love.  I did sprinkle a little powdered sugar on top to mimic frosting.

Apparently, you can make any cupcake or brownie with this method using diet Coke, Dr. Pepper, Mountain Dew…basically match the color of your cake batter with the soda.

Let’s break this down shall we:

Regular Funfetti Cupcake with frosting= 240 calories

Funfetti Cupcake no Frosting=150 calories

Diet Sprite Funfetti Cupcake no topping = 60 calories ( yep)

My cupcakes went over great, too bad though that I completely went food crazy this weekend with potato salad, french fries, BBQ and Pizza. There I’VE SAID IT and I’m blaming it all on my company. Thank goodness it’s Monday.

Have a sweet week:)



Introductions, Please…

18 Jan

Let me introduce you to my new friend, Carmelita.

I was introduced to Carmelita at this year’s; bring your neighbor some sinful Christmas treats swap. Let me tell you, Carmelita is a thing of beauty with her oatmeal, chocolate chips, caramel, pecans and gooey consistency.

One bite of these will make you will slap yo mama!

In case your mama needs a good slap or you feel like adopting a new addiction today, here’s the recipe.


1 c. flour
1 c. quick oats
3/4 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. butter, softened
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. nuts (opt.)
3/4 c. caramel ice cream topping & 3 tbsp. flour (mix)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake in approximately 8″x8″ pan. Combine first 6 ingredients to form crumb mixture. Press half mixture in the bottom of the pan. Reserve other half of mixture for top. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

After the mixture has baked 10 minutes, layer the chocolate chips, nuts and caramel with flour poured on top, in this order. Then crumble remaining flour mixture on top and bake 20 to 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Place in refrigerator to completely cool, before cutting. Store in air tight container in refrigerator for best results.
