Diabetes Blog Week — Something good to eat wild card…Andes Mint Chocolate Cupcakes

“Inspired by DFeast Fridays share a favorite recipe with us.  It can be healthy, or it can be a yummy indulgence.  Extra points if you can include carb counts and other nutrition info!!  If it’s not an original recipe, be sure to properly credit your source”

So I am opting to go with something horribly sweet and full of carbs…simply because, this happens to be one of Kinzie’s favorite things to make (and she loves how they taste too!) She considers becoming a baker (and a vet, and a scientist, and a doctor, and a dance teacher)…for a career.  (You see, T1d’ers can indulge in a little sweet as well…it’s all in the planning)

You can check out the link to the recipe we found here.  We found this recipe on *gulp* pinterest and it has quickly become a favorite to make for special occasions.  (GUILTY!) Kinzie, right now, loves to cook and bake.  And she does a great job at it too! We recently had a bake sale to raise money for her Diabetic Alert Dog fund, and this is one recipe she baked on her own to contribute (she made well over 100 cupcakes on her own in one night/day).  They were a hit!  So when she had her yard sale, a group of young men volunteered their time to help set up and organize this major event (by major, I mean weeks’ worth or solid work and organization for many volunteers from sun up to sun down).  When she heard that same group of young men were doing a fundraiser (cake auction) to go to scout camp, she started baking to donate to their auction.  This recipe, of course was the first on her list and were a hit at the cake auction.
