Red Velvet S'more Cupcakes - you are welcome!

Okay - I was just in the exercise room, walking very quickly on the treadmilll.  While I was doing this I was reading my February issue of REDBOOK magazine.  In the magazine, towards the back this recipe is what I found - YUM.  Good thing I worked out if I have to make and sample these!

Red Velvet S'more Cupcakes
1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 c. sugar
1 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
pinch of salt
3/4 c. buttermilk
1/2 c. canola oil
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
1 1/2 tbsp. red food coloring
1 tsp. white vinegar
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350.  Line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper liners.  Whisk dry ingredients together.  In another bowl, add buttermilk, oil, egg and egg yolk, food coloring vinegar and vanilla and beat about 2 minutes.  Slowly beat in your flour mixture.  Stir in 1/2 c. of the chocolate chips.  Fill cups 2/3 full and sprinkle tops of cupcake batter with rest of chocolate chips.  Bake 20 minutes or until done.  Let cool. 
4 egg whites, at room temp
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2/3 c. sugar
Beat your egg whites and cream of tartar on high until frothy.  Add in vanilla and 1 tbsp. sugar, keep beating and adding 1 tbsp. of sugar at a time until stiff peaks form.  Spoon onto tops of cupcakes.  Let brown in oven.  carefully watching so the meringue doesn't burn!
