A moist and festive red velvet muffin stuffed with white chocolate, then garnished with cute sprinkles to celebrate Valentine's Day.
I will have to say this, these are definitely not skinny muffins. They are absolutely delicious and packed full of colors for Valentine's Day.
I love Valentine's Day because you can make everything red and shower everything in cute little festive sprinkles. So much fun. 🙂
So far we have been very lucky with frozen pipes in our home lately. It must be the first-time homeowners luck! Each night I try - keyword try... to remember to let the faucets drip in kitchen and the bathroom. Last night..I forgot - oops. I have really been trying to remember, I swear.
Well...our kitchen faucet pipe froze this morning! It is supposed to warm up some this afternoon, so hopefully everything works out okay. Last time this happened, everything worked out. Thank goodness.
Anyways - let's get back to these pretty red velvet muffins.
I usually like to add tons of butter to my muffins in the morning, but not these. They are already so moist and tasty. I will also mention that you will not need a mixer for these bad boys. You can save the mixer for another day!
This red velvet muffin recipe is so easy too - like most of my other recipes. We like simple and easy around here.
- 1 and ½ cups all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ⅓ cup oil
- 1 large egg
- 1 and ¼ cups milk
- 1 and ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ cup cocoa powder unsweetened
- 1 tablespoon red food coloring
- ½ cup white chocolate chips
Preheat to 350 degrees and line a muffin tin with liners
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Mix everything together.
Add in the oil, egg, milk, and vanilla extract. Mix everything together very well.
Fold in the cocoa powder, red food coloring, and white chocolate chips.
Fill the liners ¾ of the way with the muffin mix and bake for 20 minutes. Insert a toothpick and if it comes out clean, these muffins are done
Stores in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for one week.

These sound great and I love the fact that they are not skinny...haha! Thank for sharing at the Weekend Retreat, hope to see you back on Thursday!
We made these today and they were very good! My son is going to enter a bake off with them this week. He did insist we make a simple glaze to drizzle on top because we had some at a restaurant that did the same. They were good and we will make them again. I am going to try it as a bread too, because there are less entries in the bread category usually. 🙂 Thanks for the posting!
