Red Velvet Cupcakes
24 liners for cupcakes
1 package plain German Chocolate cake mix
1 small package Vanilla instant pudding mix
1 c. sour cream
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1 oz. (1 bottle) red food coloring
3 large eggs
1 c. miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. Line cupcake pan with paper liners.
Place cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, water, oil, food coloring, and eggs in large mixing bowl. Mix on low speed for 1 minute. Scrape down sides, if necessary, mix for another 2 minutes on medium speed. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill cupcake paper liners about 2/3 full.
Bake 18-20 minutes or until they spring back when lightly touched.
Place cupcake pans on cooling racks for 5 minutes. Remove cupcakes and place on cooling racks for another 15 minutes before frosting.
I (again) use the classic cream cheese frosting.
