Matcha Cchocolate Recipe

You know I used to work in a chocolate factory in a past life. And it wasn't as fun as it sounds. There were no orange Oompa Loompas and certainly no Wily Wonka. My job was to produce easter eggs and consisted of working in a chilled room and filling moulds with melted chocolate, putting the moulds onto a rotating machine that span them round and round in different directions until the whole egg was created. Then when they were dry I had to remove the moulds that were then chilled a bit more before being opened and packed into cardboard boxes. Exciting stuff

There were four shifts per day - with lunch and 2 shorter breaks. My boss was a maniacal Sri Lankan women who ruled the factory floor with an iron fist and a bad attitude. You know what I learned from that experience? Don't work in a chocolate factory! If you do, quit tomorrow and I promise you your life will be better off.

And I never made another chocolate since - until now!

As Easter is approaching I thought It was only fitting to make some matcha green tea chocolates for my comeback. The recipe only has 2 ingredients and is super simple to make. Here it is:

Equipment

  • Mini cupcake liners
  • Candy Moulds
  • Microwavable Mixing bowl

Ingredients

  • 200 grams of good quality White Chocolate - chopped in to small pieces
  • 1 heaped tsp of cooking grade Matcha Tea Powder
  • Cooking Spray

Method

  • Melt your white chocolate in a microwave in short 20 second bursts. Be careful not to heat it too much as it will go hard and burns easily. Alternatively you can use a metal bowl over some water. Just make sure to keep stirring the whole time. Set aside for a minute.
  • Sift your matcha powder to remove any lumps
  • Stir through matcha powder into the white chocolate mixture until is dissolved completely and there's no lumps or streaks.
  • * Optional - Spray a tiny amount of cooking spray into your candy moulds to make it easier to remove chocolate
  • Chill the chocolate moulds in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours
  • Remove from moulds carefully and enjoy!

Organic Matcha Ceremonial Grade - 100g Bag (3.5oz)

Lovely green color powder

First matcha purchase!

So far I have made tea cookies, raw nut/fruit balls, smoothies, and plain matcha with cashew milk and it's all good to me! Don't have much to compare it to but a chain coffee shop latte experience years ago. I learned the amazing benefits that make the cost of matcha well worth the price.

I have yet to receive my order

This review is not about the quality of the set, but based on my customer service experience. Placed my order on April 13th, got shipping notification on April 14th, and the last shipping notification I got was April 16th saying USPS was awaiting the item in Buena Vista, CA. Emailed customer service April 22nd and received a response the same day from a member of your team saying he would inform me once he receives info from usps. I also contact usps and they stated they have no information regarding the package. As of today, April 27th, I have yet to receive any information about my order. This was meant as a gift that will now be late. Was very excited to try the set and the matcha, but this experience makes me doubt if I will order from Kenko again, unfortunately. Would appreciate this problem being solved as soon as possible. Thank you.
