Matcha Nama Chocolate 抹茶生巧克力 (中英食谱教程)

It was almost 2 years ago that I made the Royce copycat Nama Chocolate. Yesterday, I attempted to make another Royce's copycat - Matcha Nama Chocolate which has the aroma and bitterness of green tea. If you ask me which one taste better, it would be difficult to make a choice as both are equally good! This quick and simple recipe is definitely worth trying!   

Matcha Nama Chocolate 
(english recipe adapted & modified from Justonecookbook,  中文食谱由Baking Taitai翻译)

Ingredients:(makes 36 pieces, using 8"x 8" square pan)

400g white chocolate* (I used Lindt White Chocolate Swiss Classic Bars. Check that the white chocolate contains cocoa butter, do not use inferior brands which contain vegetable fat. )   )

125ml heavy whipping cream (fat content at least 38%)
25g unsalted butter  (cut into small pieces)
20g pure green tea powder (matcha) + 1 tbsp or more for sprinkling


400克 白巧克力*(我用Lindt Classic白巧克力, 白巧克力要含有可可脂的,别用含植物脂肪的低等品牌白巧克力。 )
125毫升 淡奶油(脂肪含量至少38%)
25克 无盐牛油(切小块)
20克 纯绿茶粉(抹茶)+ 1汤匙或多 (撒在表面上)

Methods 做法:
1. Chop the chocolate into smaller pieces using a knife so that they will melt faster and more evenly. (Due to the warm weather, my chocolate was in a soft state so I just cut into pieces) 


2. Put cream in a saucepan (make sure the pot is perfectly dry as even a small amount of water can "seize" the chocolate during melting ) and heat till you see bubbles forming at the side. Turn off the heat. (Do not overheat the cream or your chocolate will separate. )

2。把鲜奶油放入一个锅中加热,(一定要确保锅是完全干的,因为即使少量的水也可以使巧克力变成固体颗粒状态)看到周围冒泡时,息火。 (不要煮过热,不然巧克力会油水分离。)

3. Add in the white chocolate and stir quickly till it melts then add in the butter and stir till mixture is completely combined and smooth. (I did this over the induction hob using super low heat to keep the mixture warm for easier mixing) 

3。加入白巧克力,快速搅拌融化再加入牛油, 拌均滑顺。(我用电磁炉最小火保持混合物的温度会比较容易搅拌。)

4. Sift in the green tea powder (matcha). Mix well together. 


5. Pour the mixture into the 8"x 8" pan laid with non-stick baking paper. Tap the pan a few times on the kitchen countertop to remove any air bubbles. Smooth the surface and refrigerate for 4-5 hours or overnight.

5。将混合物倒入铺有不沾烘焙纸的8"x 8"烤盘中。烤盘在桌面震几下消除气泡,表面抹平再放进冰箱冷冻四个小时以上或隔夜。

6. Remove the chocolate from the baking pan. Slice the chocolate block into 4 blocks and then cut each block into 9 small pieces with a warm knife. Make sure to warm the knife after each cutting. You can use hot running water but wipe dry completely before each cut.


7. Dust 1 tablespoon of green tea powder (matcha) on top of the chocolate. Store the chocolate in the refrigerator until serving. Serve chilled. You can keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
