Weight Wathchers Petit Fours

I haven't made a blog entry in some time, but I thought that this waas worth telling people about. For Christmas Ross gave me a Petit Fours Pan, yes it seems like an odd gift, but I actually asked for it. With the Oscars coming up we are planning to have a few friends over so I decided it was time to put my new pan to work. Thinking about our guests that are on weight watchers I also wanted to make a sweet treat that was low in points so I decided to try something new. If you are on weight watchers you may have heard of a recipe that uses a cake mix and a can of diet soda! Yes you read right. I decided I would try this in my Petit Fours pan, crazy I know but if it works it will be amazing. So as I said the recipe is just a cake mix and a can of diet soda. The pan directions said to use cooking spray and flour so I did that liberally. Then I filled each cup 3/4 full of batter. Place in a pre heated oven at 325 for 25 minutes or until they are starting to brown. Let cool, and then carefully remove from pan. The batch of batter made forty-eight petit fours so they only work out to one point each. So I wont feel bad dusting them with a little icing sugar, or you could do cinnamon or cocoa for no extra points. I just think this is a little wild. Hope you enjoy them. P.S. I also tried a chocolate batch, but didn't like the marks that flowering the pan left on the cake. So I tried just using a lot on non stick spray and they came out wonderfully
