Matcha (Green tea) Chocolate

 One of the things i can’t say no to is Matcha (green tea).I just love it and well,I decided to create a chocolate recipe for it. Am not a big fan of White chocolate but I absolutely love this.

You will need;

80 ml Heavy Cream

1 tsp Matcha powder

150 g white chocolate

plus more white chocolate for coating about 100g

In a sauce pan,combine the heavy cream(my heavy crea was sweetened) and matcha powder

Heavy cream + green tea powder

Place on heat and whisk,bring to a little boil

break the white chocolate in pieces,put in a bowl and pour the cream into it.let sit for a while,then stir to combine

Let cool until it can form shapes without collapsing.

Fit a pipping bag with a round tip,i used wilton’s 2A

Pipe long strokes and pipe a 2nd one touching the 1st

Let it set in the refrigerator,then cut the ends off and cut into about 1 inch pieces. See those gaps? don’t worry,when you cut them put,just press the pieces together

 Temper your white chocolate. Melt half of it,the add the other half and stir until smooth

Dip the ganache into the white chocolate and coat evenly,remove with a fork or dipping tool,tap at the edge of the bowl to remove excess chocolate and place on a parchment paper.Using the side of a toothpick,touch the middle (where the ridge is) and lift the tooth pick quickly,this gives a beautiful design

 Put in the refrigerator until set.

Enjoy!
