Chocolate Red Velvet Cupcakes

My sister in law and I were talking about red velvet cake, we agreed that we didn’t think it has enough flavor. I told her when I make red velvet cake I add a lot of cocoa, afterall, I am a self confessed chocoholic. I thought I would share my version for Chocolate Red Velvet Cupcakes.

Chocolate Red Velvet Cupcakes

Add eggs and mix well. Mix in sour cream, buttermilk, and vanilla. Gradually mix in flour mixture until well incorporated. Scoop batter into prepared cupcake pan, filling each cup about 2/3 full.
