For even more flavor, sprinkle the tops of these cupcakes with a small pinch of cinnamon.

Though there is a bit of cooking involved, these super delicious chai latte cupcakes are easy to make; they use a boxed cake mix and powdered instant chai latte mix. These tasty treats are well worth the effort — they taste just like a chai latte! Start by heating your oven to 350 degrees and dividing 24 paper baking cups between two muffin pans.

Combine a box of your favorite vanilla cake mix, 1½ cups of water, ⅓ cup of vegetable oil, 3 eggs, and 3 tablespoons of powdered instant chai latte tea mix.

Mix until thoroughly combined, divide among the paper baking cups, and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Then, cool on a wire rack.

When the cupcakes have cooled completely, melt ¾ cup white chocolate chips and add them to a container of your favorite vanilla frosting. Frost the top of the cupcakes.
