The best way to start any holiday is with a holiday breakfast to match! I found this recipe for red velvet chocolate chip muffins on cookiescakespiesohmy.com. I knew right away that that was what I was going to make for Valentine’s Day breakfast. The only change I made was substituting chocolate chips with white chips since I thought white with red was a little more valentiney. (is that a word????) I hope you give them a try, if not for Valentine’s Day, then just to brighten up your morning. I know they will mine, since I stole one after they came out of the oven. At least I had a sister as my partner in crime, so I am not completely guilty. 😉
Happy Valentines Day!

Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Muffins
1½ cups flour
2 Tbl unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips (I used white)
2/3 cup milk
2 Tbl oil
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 tsp red food coloring
Preheat oven to 400°. Prepare 6 muffin cups, spray or papers (use Demarle, no spray or papers needed).
In large bowl, stir together flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, salt, and mini chocolate chips. In another bowl, whisk together milk, egg, oil, vanilla, and red coloring. Pour milk mixture over dry ingredients and stir by hand just until combined.
Scoop batter into muffin cups. Bake 18-22 minutes, or until centers are set. Cool in pan 10 minutes, remove from pan and cool on cooling rack.
Enjoy! Happy Valentines Day!

Yum! I’m planning on making some red velvet cupcakes myself, but those looks vibrant and delicious!
Thanks! I hope you do make them, they are so good! 🙂
Ooh, there is no mistaking red velvet. Very “Valentiney” indeed! And I love that you used white chocolate chips, too!
Thank you so much! Don’t you think Valentiney should be added to the dictionary?
I’m a sucker for anything pink, so I think I will have to make these (even when it’s not Valentine’s Day). Plus they look delicious!
Thank you so much for the comment! I checked out your blog and it is beautiful. I love all of the different pictures.
Red Velvet is perfect for valentines day! Come by and link up your recipes this Sunday on Sweet and Savoury Sunday, we’d love to see you there 🙂
Thank you so much! I think I will!
Kloe, these muffins are certainly a breakfast of champions..or maybe cupids! Love the vibrant color. So very festive!
Thank you! 🙂
