Did you know that green tea is not only good for drinks and beverages?  You can actually make green tea cake or green tee truffles.  Would you believe it?  If you don't, then read on buddy!  You can now eat your favorite truffles flavored with green tea.  We will do the green tea cake later, ok!

Green Tea Truffles


♦  6 ounces Valrhona chocolate (56% cacao)
♦  1/3 cup heavy cream (make sure there is no gelatin in the cream!)
♦  3 TBSP of Matcha (Powdered Japanese Green Tea)
♦  Sencha which has been placed in a blender until powdered then sifted as you only want the powder


Start chopping 4 ounces of the chocolate and set aside. Bring heavy cream to a boil. Make sure your cream is heavy, to keep the cream from scorching. Add the Matcha powder and stir until Matcha is dissolved. The resulting cream will be green.

Pour the cream over the chocolate. Smooth out any big chunks.

Stir (don't beat)with a whisk in concentric circles until smooth.

Let the cream stand at room temperature until thick enough to hold a shape. Shape into balls and place onto a parchment lined tray. Put tray into the freezer for 15 minutes until they set hard.

Melt 2 more ounces of the same Valrhona and smear some on a gloved hand. Gently rub each chilled truffle to coat lightly with chocolate.

Sprinkle with the powdered Sencha. Then just try and resist eating them!

Makes about 15 green tea truffles.
