This homemade Matcha White Chocolate will melt in your mouth.

I adapted this recipe from the Homemade White Chocolate recipe in my Naughty or Nice Cookbook.  Instead of using a base made up entirely of cacao butter, which can be too firm and “snap” like dark chocolate when broken, I used a mixture of half cacao butter, half Homemade Macadamia Butter.  Because white chocolate is supposed to be soft where your teeth sink straight through.

For an all-natural sweetness without the refined sugar (and excess calories and high glycemic index), I used a mixture of erythritol and stevia.

For some pretty vanilla bean flecks, I added a bit of my Homemade Vanilla Paste.  Alternatively, you can scrape the seeds out of half a real vanilla bean if you like!

And of course, the main ingredient:  Matcha Powder.  Matcha not only adds a beautiful, bright, and vibrant green color, but it also adds a natural, deep, and earthy tone to the chocolate.  Oh, and some antioxidants too  🙂

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Fill the bottom portion of a double boiler with 2-3” of water.  Make sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the double boiler insert!  Place over a stove set to medium heat.
  2. While the water heats up, add the nut butter, cacao butter, and vanilla paste into the double boiler insert.  When the water starts to simmer, reduce the heat to medium-low.  Whisk occasionally until completely melted.  Turn the stove off.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the erythritol, dried milk, matcha, and salt.  Slowly whisk this into the stovetop mixture.
  4. Whisk in the stevia extract (it will thicken).  Spoon the mixture into chocolate bar molds.  Refrigerate until firm.  Store in a tightly sealed container in the fridge (keeps for ~1 month).
