Choco-Matcha Truffle Recipe

choco-matcha truffle recipe

Wow! A recipe that unites two of my favorite flavors: chocolate and Matcha tea. I am pleased that Kusmi Tea has accepted that I shared the recipe on my blog. I was surprise to see that it is not complicated to make your own choco-matcha truffles. You could serve them as mignardises at the end of a dinner party or bring those as the perfect hostess gift.

Choco-Matcha Truffle Recipe
Recipe by Kusmi Tea, which operates a boutique on Saint-Denis Street in Montreal.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 5/8 cups 35% cream

Instructions:

  1. Boil cream and honey.
  2. Finely chop the chocolate and put the pieces in a bowl.
  3. Pass the sweeten cream through a sieve, pouring over chocolate.
  4. Whisk thoroughly until you get a smooth texture.
  5. Refrigerate until the mixture hardens.
  6. Make small balls with mixture. Aim for 2 cm (3/4 in) in diameter.

You could eat that with one of the delicious teas from Kusmi Tea. Click here for their online boutique that serves Canada and the United States.
