Ingredients

  • 400 g – 14 oz. good quality white chocolate
  • 125 ml - ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 25 gms – 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp green tea powder matcha, sifted + 2 tsp or more for sprinkling

Instructions

  1. Line a 20 x 20 cm - 8" x 8" baking dish with baking paper and keep it aside.
  2. Chop the white chocolate and butter into small pieces.
  3. Pour the heavy whipping cream into a small saucepan and bring it almost to a boil, then remove from the heat.
  4. Add the white chocolate and butter and mix well.
  5. Once the mixture is smooth, add 2 tbsp of green tea powder (matcha) into the mixture. Mix until the color is homogeneous.
  6. Pour into the prepared baking dish. Tap the baking dish a few times on the kitchen benchtop to remove any air bubbles and flatten the surface with a rubber spatula, if necessary.
  7. Refrigerate for 4 to 5 hours (or overnight).
  8. Lift the baking paper to remove the matcha chocolate from the baking dish. Run a sharp knife under hot water to warm up the blade and wipe it dry completely.
  9. Slice the chocolate block into 4 blocks and then cut each block into 9 small pieces.
  10. Dust 2 tsp of green tea powder (matcha) on top of the chocolates.
  11. Store in the fridge and serve chilled.
