MEEEE!!!! *As I run around my living room chanting 'I Love Chai!'* Okay...I'm not actually running around my living room chanting 'I love chai!' It would give my son ideas and my husband concerns. I do however love chai.
I have a cupcake recipe I've made in the past that calls for coffee, there are a lot of those out there combining coffee and chocolate. I'd recently made them, then happened to be walking by a Starbucks. I'm not a coffee drinker, but I love me some chai tea...if you haven't figured it out.
Then it hit me. Chai Chocolate Cupcakes. The sky opened and angels sang.
Now how to implement the chai. I actually chose the powdered chai latte in those little tins. It would store well, I could experiment with the amounts, and it wasn't expensive just in case it just really didn't work.
It worked. I frosted with chocolate cream cheese frosting and took some to work. One of my co-workers said she would do a commercial for me where she would exagerattedly eat one of the cupcakes with a look of joy and wonder while saying nom nom nom.
Now...to join my son running around the living room chanting 'I love chai and Iron Man!....'
