Curious to if you have ever made this with orange flavor instead of cherry? All I have on hand is coke zero and orange sugar free jello. I love orange and chocolate flavor together so I think it would taste great, going to try it soon!

Hi Sydney

Ooh, that would be delicious! I haven’t tried using the orange but I’m sure that would be wonderful! Give it a try and let me know!

Thanks

Hi Lindsay-

Thank you for your delicious low point dessert recipes. I made this for my husband’s birthday today and he LOVED it. It was super easy to make. I, like many others, could not find the cherry Dr. Pepper, but I just used a can of regular Diet Dr. Pepper and it turned out great! I will be making this again, judging by my husband’s reaction! (He also loves your Banana Muffins and the Raspberry Lemon muffins! Who am I kidding... I love them all too!) Kate
