Ingredients

FOR MUFFINS:

1 c
all-purpose flour
1/4 c
unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 c
instant chai tea latte mix (such as pacific chai)
1 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
salt
1/2 c
unsalted butter, softened
1 c
sugar
2 large
eggs
1/2 c
milk
1/2 tsp
vanilla extract

FROSTING:

8 oz
cream cheese, softened
1/4 c
instant chai tea latte mix
1/2 c
confectioners sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Muffins:
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line 30 indents of mini muffin pans (using 3 pans total) with paper or foil liners.
Into a small bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, chai mix, baking powder and salt. In a large bowl, beat butter until smooth. Beat in sugar until fluffy, 3 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time.
On low speed, alternately beat flour mixture and milk into butter mixture, beginning and ending with flour. Add vanilla. Divide batter among prepared cups; for ease, place batter in a large plastic bag, snip off a corner and pipe into the cups.
Bake at 350 degrees until tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 15 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pans to a rack; let cool.
2
Frosting:
Meanwhile, beat together cream cheese, chai tea mix, ¼ cup confectioners’ sugar, and milk until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to frost.
Once the cupcakes have cooled, spread with frosting, about 1 ½ tsp. For each. Dust with additional 2 TBLS. Confectioners’ sugar and cocoa powder, if desired.
