Matcha Truffles



  1. Melt chocolate in a double boiler (or heatproof bowl set over pan of water)
  2. Add vanilla bean seeds or extract to cream
  3. Add heavy cream with vanilla to chocolate while over low heat, stir well until completely mixed
  4. Chill in fridge for about 30 minutes to an hour, but check it because it can get hard fast
  5. Once it is firm enough to form into shapes, roll in 12-15 balls
  6. Drop into a bowl of sifted cocoa powder (about 1/2 - 1  tablespoon) or dust with cocoa in a mesh strainer (optionally, you can use white chocolate as a coating. Put the truffles in the freezer while you melt white chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil then coat the truffles, keep the truffles chilled so that the dark chocolate doesn't melt into the white chocolate)
  7. Sprinkle lightly with matcha for both the cocoa and the white chocolate options.
