My family loves red velvet, we always try to find excuses to make it. I have always loved red velvet and I married someone who loves it just as much. Not sure what the super special deal is with red velvet but I love it! Years ago my husband and I visited a cupcake bakery during our travels and of course we tried the red velvet cupcake with a few others and to our surprise it had a extra special chocolate chip surprise, we had never had that before. I knew I had to give it a try myself so I made my red velvet cupcake recipe and added 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips and they were wonderful and I have been making my red velvet cupcakes with the chips ever since. I have since experimented with all different chocolate chips and it is so delicious.
