With natural flavours that work together to produce a taste unlike any other, dark chocolate and Japanese Matcha green tea are truly a match made in heaven. With a rich taste, smooth texture, and enticing aroma, these indulgent truffles may not be matcha tea powder’s healthiest application but they are certainly one of the most delectable.
If that’s not enough to win you over, just bear in mind the fact that both matcha tea and dark chocolate are potent sources of antioxidants. That means these chocolate truffles have a higher antioxidant content than either matcha green tea or dark chocolate. Isn’t that something? How can you possibly say no to them now?
In any case, everybody needs a treat from time to time and these delicious Japanese Matcha Dark Chocolate Truffles can be ready to gobble up in under 2 hours. All you need are the following ingredients:
- 170g dark chocolate
- 120ml coconut cream
- 2 tbsp. Agave syrup
- 1 tbsp. Kineta Everyday Matcha Green Tea
- 1 tbsp. coconut sugar
- Pinch of Himalayan salt
The number of truffles you can make from the quantities above depends entirely on how big or small you want them to be. If you’re making a batch for a party or some other event, we recommend carrying out a trial run using the measurements above and from there, adapt the recipe to suit your needs.
