Pink Velvet Choco Chip Cupcakes are a mock of red velvet cupcakes with an addition of choco chips. I was confused in naming these cup cakes as they are not dark pinkish in color. Vanilla cupcake recipe was the basic to these cupcakes along with an addition of few ingredients make these awesome cupcakesIf needed replace food coloring with beetroot juice & enjoy goodness of the veggies along with the sweet little cupcakes. I made them for two cute little kids who were visiting us from India & they loved them a lot. To make them more delectable top them with your choice of frosting & enjoy.
