Matcha White Chocolate Truffles
1 lb. good white chocolate
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup matcha powder
~ 1 lb. white chocolate chips or buttons for dipping
Melt and stir together the first four ingredients. Chill for several hours.
Roll into 1 tsp. balls, dip in melted plain white chocolate. Store in airtight containers in a cool location, well away from dog.
Note: Sophie describes the above recipe as Matcha Truffles: Extreme Edition. Unless you really love green tea, you might want to tone this down. Start with a couple of tablespoons of matcha powder and work up from there to taste. We decided that wrapping a bit of the truffle ganache around a macadamia nut balances the flavour beautifully, so that the extreme mix works well.
