GFCFSF Mini Chocolate Cupcakes



I have recently discovered that Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake Mix made in mini muffin tins (as opposed to regular-sized muffin tins) is MUCH better -- much more moist and delicious!

For the "frosting" on these, I just melted some Enjoy Life GFCFSF mini chocolate chips in the microwave with a tiny bit of hempmilk and mixed it up. On top I sprinkled GFCFSF sprinkles (available on Allergy Grocer).

YUM! These were just awesome!

Hi granolachic! No, I haven't tried Pamela's. Where do you get it? I don't think I've seen it at our Whole Foods. We have the Cherrybrook cake at our Whole Foods, but not the icing. I'll look more closely though.

And, by the way, just because I post it doesn't mean my son actually EATS it! hahahaha. Lots of times he eats everything, sometimes he refuses everything (when he's sick or yeasty, I've noticed this happens more). My rule is that I don't make "special dinners" -- there is one dinner for the family and that's it. If you don't like it, you have to wait till breakfast the next day. I don't know if that's harsh, but I don't want to put up with the hassles and the power struggles. Although I try to have a couple of things so that there's something he'll take a nibble of. But on the nights when he absolutely refuses everything, then he'll just drink a lot of hempmilk. It's got some good nutrition, so I let it go. And then he usually eats well the next morning. My 6-year old, on the other hand, will eat virtually ANYTHING, including sardines with the heads on! Eeeewww! hahahhaa

believe it or not...kroger is where i got both of them...i am pretty sure i have seen the cake mix at WF...but the icing is in kroger's diebetic section of all places...(they both have websites to order from...both worth it!)

oh how i wish i hadn't played short order cook for so many years...but my son's sensory defensiveness has been since birth...so i found myself making his tyson chicken nuggets with every meal on the side...and we figured out the milk and soy sensitivity when he was 2...but never were really strict about it...oh well...i have started doing it your way lately (btw...not harsh...exactly what the food therapist recommends!)

keep up the good work, you're a great mommy!!
