Every bit as wonderful as green tea truffles available in high-end specialty chocolate shops! These indulgent dark chocolate ganache truffles, infused with the delicate flavor of green tea, are rolled in intense matcha green tea powder for Japanese-inspired chocolates with lots of on-trend cache.

Why Try? Indulgent chocolate truffles with the health benefits of 70% dark chocolate and antioxidant-rich green tea!

Matcha green tea, most commonly used in coffeehouse-style beverages such as iced green tea latte and Frappuccino, is available in Asian markets and health food stores. Sold in small tins, this intense tea powder adds an exotic fragrant flavor note

Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon matcha green tea
  • 7 ounces 70% Dark Chocolate, fine chopped, divided
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Matcha green tea, as needed to coat truffles

Preparation

  • 1 Combine cream, sugar and 1/2 teaspoon matcha green tea in nonstick sauce pan and whisk to blend. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; remove from heat.
  • 2 Immediately add 5 ounces fine chopped chocolate to hot cream mixture and gently stir to blend. Spread chocolate/cream ganache mixture in shallow dish and refrigerate until firm to touch.
  • 3 Shape chilled chocolate ganache mixture into balls and arrange on plate or baking sheet lined with wax paper. (If chocolate ganache gets too soft to roll into balls, refrigerate briefly.)
  • 4 Freeze truffles until firm.

  • 6 Roll cooled truffles in matcha green tea powder to lightly coat. Store truffles in refrigerator until ready to serve.
