Easy Red Velvet Cupcakes

(5.0 Average )
Make easy red velvet cupcakes by starting with a chocolate cake mix and adding red food color. For a sweet Valentine’s Day treat, cut out a heart shape from the cupcake top. Sandwich frosting between the cupcake top and bottom so that the heart-shaped frosting peeks out.
