Chai lattes may not be your absolute favorite, but these 33 chai dessert recipes may definitely change your mind. Cook up one for your family this holiday season…
1. Chocolate-Dipped Chai Spiced Raw Macaroons
We are entering the time of year where cookie plates abound and there’s nothing but sweets as far as the eye can see. At first, this can be a delightful turn of events, but after a short while all of it can get to be a little too much. This year, I have a few healthier cookie recipes that I will be adding to my traditional cookie plates for a little more wholesomeness.
2. Chai Caramel Sauce
This is ironic since a little over a year ago you couldn’t tempt me with anything chai flavored and I had no desire to have caramel by the heaping spoonful. Now I’d like to drown in the bowl below.
3. Lavender Chai Shortbread
Lavender Chai Shortbread, a buttery, crumbly, melt-in-your-mouth wedge of goodness, all dressed up for the holiday season with icing and sprinkles, and with the lovely flavor of a lavender chai tea.

A very unusual cake but the flavors will surprise you. This Masala Chai Cake is moist and delicious with a light essence of aromatic chai combined with spices and lots of roasted hazelnuts. Even if your not a chai lover, you’re going to love this.

Chocolate. Chai. Cashew Butter. Cups. Pretty much a fancy pants Reese cup without any crap and way more flavor. You want this in your life. Trust me. Are you ready to give them a try?

I started with ripe, but firm, pears and immersed them in chai-inspired spices, including a pinch of black pepper that gives these mini pies a little kick. Topped with a classic flaky pie crust, one bite of these Mini Chai-Spiced Pear Pies and it’s like fall appeared in your kitchen. Enjoy!
7. Chai Latte Blondies

10. Dirty Chai Eggnog
Eggnog is still banned from our family holiday parties. Last year I made milk punch (spiced milk with whiskey) in hopes of changing my brother’s mind. His extreme disdain for eggs is to blame for our eggnog-less parties. I’m not one to take no for an answer, so I’m trying again this year.
