After trying a Matcha dark chocolate truffle for the first time – I was hooked. Matcha isn’t just a perfect cosy drink (blog post on Matcha and recipe for Matcha latte’s >> here) but it makes the PERFECT baking ingredient. A little goes a long way and can add the most stunning colours to your creations.
At first bite I demanded the recipe so I could whip some up at home and continue my addiction. But for a good reason. They are simply divine. If you like coconut – and dark chocolate of course – then you are going to love these. High in protein, super high in antioxidants and super high in deliciousness.
