An original recipe found on the blog.

Ingredients

    • 20-25 strawberries
    • 6 oz. white chocolate, finely chopped
    • 1.5 tsp Aiya Cooking Grade Matcha
    • 2 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped
    • Chocolate sprinkles (or other toppings) as desired

Directions

    1. Thoroughly wash and dry the strawberries and place them in the fridge.
    2. Finely chop the white chocolate and place in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, stir, and microwave again for 20 seconds. If the chocolate has not melted, continue microwaving in 10 second increments until completely melted.
    3. Sift the Matcha over the melted white chocolate and stir until combined.
    4. Take the strawberries out of the fridge. Make sure each strawberry is completely dry before dipping it into the chocolate.
    5. Gently hold the leaves of the strawberries and dip each into the Matcha chocolate 2/3rds of the way, twirling the strawberry to get an even coat.
    6. Dip into your desired toppings and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Leave some strawberries with no toppings for the chocolate drizzle.
    7. Chill the strawberries in the fridge for 8-10 minutes or until firm.
    8. For the semi-sweet chocolate drizzle: microwave the chocolate for 45 seconds, stir, then microwave for another 15 seconds. If not completely melted, continue microwaving in 10 second increments until fully melted. Using a fork, lightly drizzle the chocolate onto the strawberries.
    9. Chill in the freezer for another 8 minutes or until firm.
    10. Share and enjoy! :- )
