Diet Coke Brownies **

These were... interesting.  That's the best description I can come up with.  The top gets really crusty, and the inside is really mushy, even after an hour.  My 6-year-old said he thought it was kind of like pudding on the inside, and that's a pretty decent description.  It comes off too sweet too.  I didn't think about it, but the artificial sweeteners in there just add to the sugar that's already in the mix.  It's a cute idea, but I honestly don't see why you wouldn't just sub applesauce.  That would be a much healthier alternative.

1 box Betty Crocker Low-Fat Fudge Brownie mix
1 (12 oz) can Diet Coke

Pour brownie mix into a medium-sized bowl and pour in your 12 oz. can of diet coke. Using a hand held mixer or whisk, combine ingredients until you see no more lumps. Pour mixture into a 9 x 9-inch pan coated with cooking spray and bake according to the package directions, adding an additional 5 to 10 minutes to the baking time. Your brownies should bake for about 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes and enjoy!
