Red Velvet Cupcakes recipe

We heart cupcakes. Any kind. But moist red velvet topped with cream cheese frosting makes the experience truly special.

These are barely worth the effort. The pudding mix made the batter super thick so it took a long time to pour into the muffin cups. There is enough batter for more than 24 cupcakes and also too much frosting (I'm using the leftovers as a fruit dip). The frosting is way too sweet. Also, the cupcakes just taste like plain, old chocolate cupcakes-not red velvet at all. They're acceptable, but one is enough because of the sweetness. They do look nice though-even without the chocolate curls on top (which are definitely not necessary as far as taste). Tip: check the cupcakes before the minimum baking time on the box. Mine were done four mins early.
These taste FANTASTIC!!! Follow the
directions and they are flawless. Instead of
the white chocolate curls I decided to melt
some semi sweet bakers squares in a ziploc.
Snip off the end and made a chocolate
drizzle over the tops. I also made some
chocolate heart accents by lining a small
cookie sheet with wax paper & drawing hearts
with the melted chocolate in ziploc bag. Pop
the sheet in the fridge for about 10-15
min., peel them off the wax paper and topped
each cupcake with heart accents. You have to
work fast b/c they do melt quickly at room
temp. and body temp. (I used a rubber glove
to handle the choc. accents). Pop the
cupcakes back in the fridge & keep them
stored in the fridge. My husband downed 4 of
these in one sitting they are *THAT* good.
:o) Here's a picture of what mine looked
like afterward, these are sooo yummy!
These cupcakes are easy to make and my family loved them. I especially liked the homemade icing and I did add 1 tsp of vanilla to it. Everyone was surprised to see the icing in the middle and it was easy to do!! Thanks, it was nice to give something like this to my family for Valentine's Day.
I forwarded this to my niece in TX & she wrote "Thanks for forwarding me the recipe. I made them tonight and they are awesome...definitely a hit! :)" She has 4 young children & is a busy mother & wife. Thanks!
These were AWESOME! Like others, I added a little vanilla to the frosting, but other than that...YUMMMMMM
The frosting is even better if you use Jello cream cheese flavored pudding mix instead of the powdered sugar. (4 serving mix).
This is so good!!! I have always loved red velvet cake since I was a little girl. I will make it again.....
I made it as a cake instead of cupcakes. I added a 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla to the frosting, I thought that it was too sweet, but it was still good.
Recipe was good however I thought the chocolate pudding gave it too much of a chocolate brownie taste instead of red velvet
Love, Love, LOVE this recipe!!! Made it with my daughter and a non-cooker friend, LOL, and it came out wonderuflly! The frosing was a bit too sweet for me so I added a splash of vanilla and it was perfect! Did I say I loved this recipe??!
