Skinny Peppermint Mocha Cupcakes

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by admacari

I had read about making cakes with a can of diet pop instead of the ingredients on the back of the cake box, and so I began exploring different flavors I thought would work together so I could have a delicious reduced calorie treat without feeling guilty. Enjoy! :)
