Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing and Smore Sprinkles

Red Velvet is my absolute favorite, I added smore sprinkles that I found in the store. You don't need sprinkles for these and if you can't find smore ones substitute whatever sprinkles you love.

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 tbsp red food coloring
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp white vinegar

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Whisk together flour, salt, cocoa and baking soda.
  3. Combine butter, sugar, eggs and food coloring in mixer.
  4. In a separate bowl combine water, vinegar and buttermilk.
  5. Add flour mixture and buttermilk extra into mixer with butter mixture. Alternate a little of each at a time while your mixer is going.
  6. Set up 24 cupcake liners. Fill 3/4 way with batter.
  7. Bake 20-25 minutes till toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  8. Cool Completely before frosting with your favorite cream cheese icing and add sprinkles.
