Easy Matcha Chocolate Truffles in the Microwave

Easy Matcha Chocolate Truffles in the Microwave

Rich matcha truffles paired with white chocolate.

Ingredients: 15 bite-sized (aprox. 3 cm) portions

White chocolate
80 g
Butter
15 g
Heavy cream
40 ml
Matcha
1 1/2 tablespoons
Garnish
Matcha
to taste

Steps

1. Break the white chocolate into roughly 1 cm pieces using your hand or a knife. Cut the butter into 5 mm thick pieces. Place in a heat resistant dish.
2. If using a chocolate bar, break it apart with your hands so you won't end up with too many shavings.
3. If chopping the chocolate with a knife, there is a chance that the shavings will become shiny and brown when cooked, so be careful.
4. Microwave Step 1 at 600 W for 1 minute to melt. Stir well with a whisk.
5. Put the heavy cream in a separate heat-resistant container and microwave at 600 W for 20 seconds.
6. Pour Step 5 into 4 and mix together. Add the matcha and combine well.
7. Use a spoon to drop the Step 6 mixture into the heart-shaped cake molds. Hold the pan with both hands and rap it a few times against the counter to smooth out the surface.
8. Chill in the refrigerator for about 3 hours to harden (or chill in the freezer).
9. Once the truffles have hardened, remove from the pan. Use a tea strainer to dust with matcha to garnish.
10. If using a silicone cake pan, push out the truffles from the bottom of the molds.
11. If storing at home, I recommend placing them into an airtight container and keep them in the refrigerator.
