These are so delicious. Last year, I bought some mini red velvet brownies from Walmart and I thought they were yummy so I decided to replicate them. The results were fantastic! These chocolaty red velvet cupcakes are wonderful with cream cheese frosting. Enjoy!

For the mini cupcakes (makes about 24):

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 stick (4 Tbsp.) butter
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 2 small eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tsp. red food coloring
  • mini chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line 24 mini cupcake tins with paper liners. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder. Set aside. In a medium saucepan, bring the brown sugar, butter, and water to a simmer. Off the heat, whisk in chopped chocolate until smooth, let cool slightly. Once cooled, whisk in eggs one at a time. Once eggs are combined add in vanilla and food coloring. Add the liquid mixture to the flour mixture and stir to combine. Divide the batter into the cupcake tins and spoon about 1 teaspoon of mini chocolate chips into the center of each cupcake. Bake for about 10 minutes.
