Red Velvet Chocolate Chunk and Drizzle Cupcakes

First off **Drool**


No seriously, these are super easy and super simple!!!

What you need:
Box of moist Red Velvet Cake Mix {I cheated, I know :(}
Whatever box calls for (i.e. eggs, oil, water)
Cocoa Powder
Either chocolate chips chunk from a bag or hand cut (I think hand cut is better, but that's just me) :)
My Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe ( added a little sweetened condensed milk this time)
Chocolate chips and shortening (or melting candy coating chocolate)

Start making your red velvet cupcakes as the box directs, but once you're all mixed up and insure there are nu clumps, add in your chunks of chocolate pieces. Also, add in just a tsp of cocoa powder to add more of a chocolate flavor. Then bake as directed.

Next:
Make the cream cheese frosting (try adding in the sweetened condensed milk, I know you don't want to open that whole can for just a few tsps, but its something different to try!) and once done pour into a Ziploc bag with one corner snipped off or a frosting gun.

Whist cooling your cupcakes, melt your chocolate on low heat on the stove top adding just a bit of milk to it so it doesn't burn or for 30 second increments in the microwave then stirring in between. Add in your shortening (about 1 spoonful) and stirring it in. If you're using candy coating chocolate then you don't need shortening. Once melted pour into a bottle with a small tip or just use a Ziploc bag with a small cut in the corner. 

Once cupcakes are cooled (make sure they are COMPLETELY cooled!!!) Start piping out your frosting. I just did simple swirl around the cupcake. Once applied, just do simple zig-zag motions over you frosting. It doesn't have to look perfect, in fact that's what makes it look nice, is just a bit of chaos. :)

That's it!!!
You're Done!!!
Go show these simple and easy cupcakes to your friends, neighbors, family and let them assume how much hard work you went through over these cupcakes! They'll never know!!
