Tasty Thursday: All Spiced Up

{Tasty Thursday | Chai Brownies}
Recipes, Tips, and Inspiration from my kitchen to yours.

Don't these just look delicious? Guess what? They are! And they're super easy to make!

This is my newest twist on brownies, and D has declared them a winner! I'm always looking to spice things up a bit, and the chocolate in these brownies balances nicely with some chai tea flavor. I cheated and used a box brownie mix and a scoop of Tastefully Simple's Oh My! Chai drink mix (one scoop of the mix is roughly 3 Tablespoons). They would be just as good with some homemade chai mix instead, like Taste of Home's Spiced Chai Mix. You can play around with the spices and add or subtract depending on your personal preferences, and use the mix for a steaming mug of chai tea later.
For extra gooey brownies, I added a handful of chocolate chips. Yum!

These brownies are the perfect fall twist on an always-welcome dessert! What other ways do you like to spice up your brownies?
