Matcha Hot Chocolate

make_matcha_hot_chocolate_0213

I love hot chocolate and I love matcha, so I came up with a recipe that brings my favorites together—matcha hot chocolate. It’s pretty easy and the combination of milk and white chocolate creates a delicious and creamy drink. Just a note, matcha has a high level of caffeine, so it may not make the best nighttime beverage.

If you want to add an extra sweet touch for Valentine’s Day, how about topping it with a homemade heart marshmallow?

MATCHA HOT CHOCOLATE
Makes 2 cups 

INGREDIENTS
2 cups milk (I used soy milk.)
2 teaspoons matcha (like this one)
2/3 of a 3.5oz white chocolate bar (I used Lindt.)
2 marshmallows (I picked mine up from City Bakery for $1 each.)

DIRECTIONS
1. Finely chop white chocolate. Bring milk just to a boil over low heat. Remove from heat.
2. Stir or whisk in white chocolate and matcha until well blended.
3. Ladle matcha hot chocolate into 2 mugs. Top with marshmallows. Enjoy!

    That looks so perfect. I love those marshmallows from City Bakery. My daughter will, too. I need to get some for us and make this. (Or hire you to do it for me! Ha!)

    Hi Nicole, try it and let me know how you like it!

    Hi Michele, I would recommend make it with less matcha (1/2 teaspoon or less) if you're making it for your daughter. The matcha is jam packed with caffeine so be warned.

    City Bakery's Hot Chocolate Festival is going on now. You can also pick one up while getting the marshmallows!

    omg, this looks delicious! I wonder how it would taste if I used dark (or milk) chocolate.

    p.s. where did you purchase your whisk?

    Hi notesontea, I avoided dark and milk chocolate since I didn't want it to compete with or overwhelm the matcha flavor and color. Give it a try though and let me know if you prefer it over the white chocolate!

    I got the whisk at IKEA: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/50093172/
