Description

These 5-ingredient dark chocolate truffles include one flavorful secret ingredient: matcha! These truffles make for a great gift around the holidays.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces chopped dark chocolate (or dark chocolate chips)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • ½ teaspoon matcha powder plus matcha to coat
  • unsalted chopped pistachios to coat

Instructions

  1. Place chocolate and vanilla in a medium heat proof mixing bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat cream in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, swirling occasionally until steaming hot and simmering along the edges. Pour over the chocolate and whisk until all the chocolate is melted, about 3 minutes. (See tip.) Whisk in ½ teaspoon matcha powder. Refrigerate until firm, 2 to 4 hours (or overnight.)
  3. Scoop 1 tablespoon portions of the chocolate mixture and roll into balls. Roll the balls in the remaining matcha or pistachios. Refrigerate until serving.

Notes

Tip: If the chocolate doesn’t become completely smooth, you can continue gently heating it over a double boiler, stirring constantly. Or transfer it to a microwave-safe bowl and heat 30 seconds at a time, stirring between each round until completely smooth. The mixture will become glossy.
