This was one of the desserts at a potluck we had at work years ago. Not bad for a jazzed-up box cake mix.

Ingredients

1 box
devil's food cake mix
1/4 c
chai latte flavored international instant coffee mix
1 1/3 c
water
1/2 c
vegetable oil
3 large
eggs
1 c
miniature semisweet chocolate chips

FROSTING

2 1/2 c
confectioners' sugar
2 Tbsp
butter, softened
3 Tbsp
milk
1 Tbsp
chai latte flavored international instant coffee mix
ground cinnamon, if desired

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat the oven to 350°F. (or 325°F. if using a dark or nonstick pan). Spray the bottom and sides of a 13x9-inch pan with baking spray with flour.
2
In a large bowl, beat the cake mix, 1/4 cup chai latte mix, the water, oil, and eggs with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping the bowl occasionally. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour into the prepared pan.
3
Bake for 29 to 40 minutes or until the center of the cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
4
In a medium bowl, mix the confectioners' sugar and butter until smooth; set aside. In a microwavable bowl, microwave the milk on HIGH for 10 to 15 seconds until very warm. Stir in 1 T. dry chai latte mix until dissolved; stir into the confectioners' sugar mixture until smooth and spreadable. Spread over the cake. Just before serving, dust with cinnamon.
