Matcha Marzipan Chocolates
If your short on time and ingredients why not try making these super quick and easy matcha marzipans with only a few ingredients.
Add to a bowl 200g bag of ground almonds and to that two tablespoons of sifted matcha. Mix the matcha in well and add four tablespoons of pure maple syrup and cream the almonds with the maple syrup. You can test that it’s mixed well if you take a little piece and it rolls into a ball and sticks together.
Take x1 and 1/2 bars of vegan chocolate I used the Moo free rice milk chocolate which equates to 150g
Melt in a bowl with hot water underneath.
While the chocolate is melting take heaped tablespoons of marzipan mixture and roll into balls . If you would like to add a filling you could add a hazelnut or like me I added some crystallised ginger. Just push in your filling and then roll again .
Line a tray with parchment paper
When your chocolate is melted roll each ball in the chocolate to coat and place on your tray.
When all the marzipan is coated you can add a topping like some chopped nuts or chopped candied Yuzu peel.
Chill in the fridge.
Serve with a nice Japanese tea of choice or maybe an Umeshu
