Chocolate Chai

Have you ever stopped to check out your internet history for the day?  Can you see your thought patterns as you miss-click and your journey has stumbled down a rabbit hole that is so far away from where you started?  My internet adventure was serendipitous today!  I love the notion of chocolate and chai spices.  Usually I will grab a chai tea bag and add a teaspoon of cocoa.  But I wanted to eliminate the black tea leaves and find chai spice to add to my cocoa.  I started off looking for chai recipes.  I found a beautiful blog, Fit Foodie Finds, fell in love with the photos, and tried the recipe.

Absolutely delicious flavor, perfect balance of warming spices.  Yet I wanted more.  I wanted to remove the “powdery” after taste.  What if I kept the spices whole?
