If you are a Chai lover you will love these cute little Chai mini loaves. They are so moist while cutting a loaf in half the icing just ran down the middle. I forgot to take the picture before I gave away the goodies. If you are not much of a chocolate fan this is the recipe for you. I found this recipe in the Taste of Home Magazine.
Chocolate Chai Mini Loaves

2 squares semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
11/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons chai tea latte mix
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup confectioners sugar
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1 tablespoon chai tea latte mix
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 to 5 teaspoons milk

In a microwave, melt chocolate with the water; stir until smooth. Cool slightly. In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla, then chocolate mixture.
Combine the flour, latte mix, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with sour cream.
Transfer to three greased 5-3/4in x 3-in. x 2-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350F for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
For frosting, combine the confectioner sugar, butter, latte mix, vanilla and enough milk to achieve desired consistency.

Nett, the awards are fun and well deserved. You have a terrific blog and I enjoy coming here.

I am very interested in your recipe. I am unfamiliar with chai tea latte mix. Is it something I can purchase in a grocery store? Is a liquid or dry mix?
