Chai Latte Cupcakes

I know, I know. It's been almost 3 weeks since I've posted anything (hangs head in shame) but, I'm back and have I got a post for you. It's delicious and decadent and oh-so-yummy! If you love Chai Tea Lattes you'll love these cupcakes! And for those that aren't fans of the Chai Tea Latte (gasp!) I believe you'll also love these cupcakes. Just take a look...

Amazing, right?? Believe me, they taste as good as they look. They are the perfect blend of spices, cake, and cream. So, here it is. The recipe:

Chai Latte Cupcakes

1 box SuperMoist French Vanilla Cake mix
1 1/2 c. water
1/3 c. vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 pkg. (1.1 oz) instant chai tea latte mix (or 3 Tbl. from lg. container)

1 c. white vanilla baking chips
1 container Rich and Creamy vanilla frosting
Ground cinnamon

Heat oven to 350 for shiny metal pans (325 for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cups in each of 24 muffin cups.

In a lg. bowl, beat cake ingred. with electric mixer on low speed for 30 sec. Beat on med. speed for 2 mins. scraping bowl occasionally. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.

Bake 18-23 mins. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 mins; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely.

In med. microwavable bowl, microwave baking chips on high 30 seconds; stir until melted. If necessary, microwave 15 sec. longer. Stir until smooth; cool 5 mins. Stir in frosting until well blended.

Immediately spread or pipe frosting mixture on cupcakes. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Store loosely covered at room temperature.

So give these babies a try. I have a feeling you'll be glad you did!

Those look tempting...but I don't care that much for cake, however my husband would probably gobble them up!
