Ingredients you will need to make matcha fudge chocolate
Gather the following ingredients in your kitchen and let the magic matcha fudge making begin!
2 tbsp matcha powder
260g white chocolate
25g unsalted butter
3 tbsp condensed milk
3 1/4 tbsp heavy cream
To begin, take a microwave-safe bowl and combine the white chocolate and butter. Microwave the mixture for 15-30 seconds, allowing them to melt together.
Next, ensure that your matcha powder is free of clumps by sifting it into the melted white chocolate mixture. Stir the mixture until it becomes smooth and well-blended.
Add the condensed milk and heavy cream to the bowl, and continue to mix until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
Take a 6x6 inch brownie pan and line it with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan, spreading it evenly.
Place the pan in the refrigerator and allow the mixture to cool and set until it reaches a firm consistency.
Once the mixture is ready, remove it from the pan and cut it into evenly sized cubes. Sprinkle matcha powder generously over the truffles for an extra touch. Now, they are ready to be enjoyed!
