Favorite Ingredients Friday-Desserts Edition

Well desserts are not something that I get to enjoy a lot these days since starting my new healthier lifestyle, but every now and then you just want something and these kind of recipes take the guilt out of it! I usually post on my other blog, but thought it would be nice to send some people over here to my weight loss blog. I have lost 35 pounds since January doing Weight Watchers! So, for now my desserts are going to be WW friendly.
German Chocolate Cake
One box German Chocolate cake mix
12 oz. diet coke or diet Dr. pepper
1 small box sf/ff butterscotch pudding
1 3/4 c. skim milk
1/4 c. flaked coconut
1/4 c. chocolate chips and/or chopped pecans (optional)
Mix cake mix and diet soda thoroughly, pour into a pam-sprayed 9x13 pan, bake as directed on package. While still some what warm remove from pan and put on serving plate. Poke holes in top of cake. Prepare pudding with the milk and before fully set pour gently over top of cake. While still wet sprinkle coconut and, if desired, chocolate chips and pecans. Refrigerate and allow to set for a few hours before serving.Special Notes:The pudding is a decent substitute for the usually decadent coconut/pecan icing. Since you are just sprinkling them on top you don't need too much.Makes
18 Servings: about 3 Points per Serving, please check this with the ingredients you use, as some cake mixes NI are different!
