Chai Brownie Cupcakes with Creamy Froth Recipe

This tasty Chai Brownie Cupcake recipe comes from the Pillsbury 44th Bake-Off cookbook.  I actually used the recipe as given and it rocks!! It is a perfect cupcake with the spicy chai tea and whipped creme frosting. Enjoy!

Chai Brownie Cupcakes with Creamy Froth 

Ingredients:

10 tea bags spiced chai-flavored black tea
1 cup boiling water
1 box Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix
3/4 c. canola oil
3 eggs
3/4 c. thawed extra creamy wipped topping
3/4 c. marshmallow creme
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon

Directions:

1- Heat oven to 350F. Place paper baking cup in each of the 12 muffin cups.
2- In a 2 c. glass measuring cup, steep tea bags in boiling water for 5 min. Using back of spoon, press tea bags against side of cut to make 3/4 c. tea. Discard bags.  If necessary, ad enough water so tea measures 3/4 cup.
3- In large bowl, stir brownie mix, oil, eggs and tea with wooden spoon until well blended.  Divide batter evenly among cups (to almost full)
4- Bake 25-30 min. or until toothpick inserted comes out almost clean. Remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool about 45 min.
5-Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, beat whipped topping and marshmallow creme on medium speed about 3 min. or until like and fluffy.  Refrigerate while cupcakes cool.  Generously frost cupcakes with topping mixture; sprinkle with cinnamon.

My take on the recipe: This was quick and easy. I'd never made cupcakes with brownie batter before.  It had an interesting texture.  If you like chai tea, this had a nice chai flavor.  I didn't use the muffin liners.  I lightly greased each cup and pour in the batter. We made 12 large ones and used the mini to make 12 mini.
This recipe came from the Pillsbury 44th Bake-Off cookbook!  These were really simple to make. I made the recipe straight from the card with no changes! That is a first.
