Coca Cola NCAA® Final Four Packs available at Walmart – near the refrigerated section at my store – come in three flavors: Cherry, Vanilla and Coke Zero.
Cherry Coke is my favorite Coca-Cola beverage! I enjoy drinking it, but I also love cooking/baking with it. I wanted to see what ‘manfood’ I could create my husband and his friends to enjoy while they watched basketball. Coca-Cola NCAA® Final Four Packs are available at Walmart are for 4 for $5. I picked up 1 Coke Zero, 1 Vanilla Coke and 2 Cherry Coke.
I made Vanilla Coke and BBQ Chicken:
In a large skillet, stir 1/2 cup BBQ sauce and 1 cup Vanilla Coke together. Add in chicken (3 or 4 breasts). Cook (covered) for about 30 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked.
It was tender, delicious and a big hit with my husband. I can’t wait to make it again!
You could use Coke Zero for this recipe, but I don’t recommend you use Cherry Coke.
And because every yummy meal needs a tasty dessert, I made Cherry Coke Cupcakes:
Cherry Coke Cupcakes #FinalFourPack
- 1 Box Vanilla Cake Mix
- 3 Large Eggs
- 1 Cup Cherry Coca-Cola
- 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce
- 1/4 Cup Grenadine
- Optional: Maraschino Cherries
Preheat the oven to 350
Combine cake mix, eggs, Cherry Coca-Cola, applesauce, grenadine.
Beat at a low speed until everything is combined.
Continue to beat at medium speed for 2 minutes.
Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full.
Bake for 13-16 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Frost, serve and ENJOY!
*Note: I used pre-made frosting.
You could swap the Cherry Coke either of the other two flavors very easily. Any of them would be delicious!
