  • Makes
    3 mini loaves (6 slices each)

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons chai tea latte mix
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • FROSTING:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon chai tea latte mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 to 5 teaspoons whole milk

Directions

  • 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 1 egg 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 3 greased 5-3/4x3x2-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • For frosting, combine the confectioners' sugar, butter, latte mix, vanilla and enough milk to achieve desired consistency. Frost tops of loaves.
Health Tip: Skip the frosting and dust the top of these loaves with confectioners’ sugar to cut calories by almost 20 percent.
