Chocolate Chai

This recipe came to me courtesy of one of my west coast friends Verhanika. She is entrepreneur, mother, blogger (Issues & Tissues), and all around bad-ass boss bitch. We met freshman year of college and have been friends ever since. In some of our recent phone conversations, she’d mentioned making herself a Chocolate Chai to enjoy while were on the phone or to wind down in the evenings. Finally I broke down and asked for the recipe because it sounded amazing, and it was.

Ingredients:

Directions:

1. In a small sauce pan over medium heat combine chips and cover with milk.  2. As the chips start melting add your chai mix.  3. Whisk ingredients together until chocolate is fully melted and integrated into the liquid. 4. Carefully, pour into a tall mug, or two smaller mugs, and enjoy!

Notes:

  • The ambiguity on the milk measurement is to allow for people who’d prefer a smaller quantity of beverage or for a more concentrated flavor. Personally, I go for the 1 1/2 cup 😉
  • If you can’t get your hands on the chai mix, you can steep 2 chai tea bags in the hot milk and then finish with a tbsp or two of sugar to add additional sweetness.
  • This beverage is already pretty amazing on its own, but if you want to take completely over the top, you can garnish the final product with a dollop of whipped cream and dusting of cinnamon.

 

About Julie

My name is Julieanna Bucior, but I go by Julie (unless I'm in trouble). I'm twenty nine. I am a bookkeeper by day, rogue fashion designer/crafter/amateur baker by night. I spend most of my time feeling like a kindergartner trapped inside an adults body. I love reading, hanging out with my crazy cats and being silly. I'm pretty much the girl next door, with a twist.

  • I’m not the biggest fan of chai…but with chocolate? That may be a different story! Ha ha.

      It’s really good I promise! In fact I enjoyed the pairing so much that I am thinking about turning it in to a cake 🙂
