Chocolate Chai Latte Cookies

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Muffin Goddess

Adapted from a recipe I found in a Land O'Lakes holiday cookie mag. Unusual but good (calls for a cake mix as the cookie base). They went over pretty well with my favorite group of culinary guinea pigs, my coworkers!

Yum, these are so delicious! I absolutely loved these. I am a huge fan of the chocolate chai combo, so I was really excited to try these. That said, I needed to make them gluten free, which worked out wonderfully. A few notes on what I did in case any other gf people also love chocolate chai :) I used a gluten free chocolate cake mix (slight difference in size - 15 oz - but kept the rest of the ingredients the same anyway). I baked each batch for 11 minutes on my silpat mat and let them rest for a few minutes on the cookie sheet before moving to a cooling rack. This created cookies with a gorgeous crispy outside and soft delicious inside. I used the chai ingredients listed rather than a premade mix and the separate white and semisweet chocolate chips, since I already had them on hand. I couldn't resist trying one warm out of the oven - soooo good, but plenty sweet so I skipped the drizzle. Just loved these! Thanks so much for sharing! ZWT8

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients in the cookie list except for the chips. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and well mixed.
  3. Stir in chips.
  4. Shape dough into 3/4 inch balls (I use a small cookie scoop). Place about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  5. Bake at 350F for about 9 to 11 minutes, or until tops are set (slight underbaking will provide more fudgy chewy cookies).
  6. Cool cookies on baking sheet for about 2 minutes. Remove cookies to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
  7. While cookies are cooling, combine the dry drizzle ingredients in a small bowl. Add milk or water gradually, mixing well between additions, until you achieve the consistency you like.
  8. Drizzle over cooled cookies. Allow drizzled cookies to dry fully before packing cookies for storage or transport.
  9. NOTE: In place of the spices in the cookies, you can use 3 tbs. of instant chai latte mix (any flavor).
  10. NOTE: You can substitute 1 1/2 cups white chocolate/semisweet swirled chips for the separate types, if you prefer.
