What to Eat Wednesday & New Etsy Shop

Hi all :)

First I want to start off with a link to my new etsy shop. My goal with this shop is to keep everything under $20. Right now I have some fun headbands and my owls in stock. I'll keep you posted when I put new gifts/items in there.

This weekend I made some Chai Latte Cupcakes and they turned out SO YUMMY! I've had quite a few people ask me for the recipe so you got it!

Chai Latte Cupcakes (thank you, Betty Crocker)

-one betty crocker french vanilla cake mix
-3 tablespoons instant chai latte mix
-3 eggs
-1 1/2 cups of water (for high altitude take out a quarter cup to make it 1 1/4 cups)
-1/3 cup veggie oil

1 cup white chocolate baking chips
1 container of french vanilla icing


Heat oven to 350°F for shiny metal pans (or 325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.

In large bowl, beat cake ingredients with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.

Bake 18 to 23 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

In medium microwavable bowl, microwave baking chips on High 30 seconds; stir until melted. If necessary, microwave 15 seconds longer. Stir until smooth; cool 5 minutes. Stir in frosting until well blended.

Immediately spread or pipe frosting mixture on cupcakes.

**I sprinkled the tops with cinnamon and added pieces of cinnamon sticks on the top. I'm telling you, they were darling until I commuted with them on my bike basket.**

p.s. i'm going to texas tomorrow! whoop :)
