How to Make Chai Cupcakes

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.
