I love anything matcha green tea flavored, especially matcha chocolates.
I’ve been really surprised at the prices for Japanese green tea chocolates, especially when it’s easy to make your own.
Recently, I decided to try making my own, melting some high quality white chocolate and adding some high quality matcha powder. Still cheaper than buying it and tasted the same to me.
You can make them into different shapes, gift them, make them like Reese’s cups and fill them. I did a few with strawberry jam but I didn’t have a chance to photograph the inside.
- 1 cup high quality white chocolate chopped
- 2 tsp high quality matcha powder
- Melt chocolate in the microwave, at 30-second intervals, stirring after each heat, until chocolate is smooth. You can also melt in a double boiler.
- Add in matcha powder and stir until uniform in color and no matcha powder streaks remain. Pour into candy molds and refrigerate until set. Let chocolates come to room temperature before eating.
