Chocolate Matcha Truffles Recipe

These truffles make the perfect pick-me-up snack or dessert. I love using matcha, which is a type of green tea in powdered form, whenever I can in my cooking. It’s filled with antioxidants and has about ten times the antioxidants that regular green tea has! These truffles are chocolatey, gooey and delicious.

Matcha has a naturally bitter flavour so know that the outside of your truffles will have a slight bitter first bite. If you really don’t like bitter flavours (or if you’re making them for kids), then simply blend the matcha in with the rest of the ingredients. They won’t look as pretty on the outside but they’ll taste sweeter ??
