The Senior Shwank Factor
I mindfully designed these glamorous chocolate cupcakes to commemorate my Oma’s 75th birthday party, for she’s a raging chocoholic. As a remarkably fit and healthy senior citizen, however, she effortlessly fits in with the ragin’ grannies activists and Tuesday yoga club. No wonder she can chop down on chocolate and still maintain what I like to call a “semi slender senior waist of wisdom.” I took the liberty to adapt a healthy chocolate cupcake recipe from www.canyoustayfordinner.com (one of my current food blog obsessions). The cupcakes (without the extraneous yet delightfully decorative chocolate shavings and painfully sweet frosting) are only a mere 108 calories. Feel free to have a few. What would this world be without chocolate and its sweet goodness. Never underestimate the power of cocoa beans, they truly can be a life long friend. Your chocolate coma awaits.
