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

Step-By-Step

1Preheat 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.
2In 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.
3Bake for 29 to 40 minutes or until the center of the cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
4In 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.
