Matcha White Hot Chocolate

Matcha and hot chocolate? Yes, yes, and a thousand times yes. I’m a devoted fan of both, and this recipe combines them into a dreamy mug of pure bliss.

Let’s get real about this green-chocolatey goodness.

Why You’ll Love It

  • Taste: Think rich, creamy matcha latte meets decadent hot cocoa. It’s sweet, earthy, and deeply satisfying.
  • Easy peasy: No fancy equipment needed, just a saucepan and a whisk.
  • Customizable: Make it your own with different milks, sweeteners, and toppings.

Ingredient Notes

  • Matcha: Don’t splurge on ceremonial grade here. Culinary matcha is perfect and budget-friendly. Look for a vibrant green color, not dull grey.
  • White chocolate: About 3/4 of a bar melts into this recipe, leaving the rest for nibbling (research purposes, of course).
  • Milk & honey: Choose your favorites, plant-based milks work great too. Start with less honey and adjust to your taste.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Simmer: Heat milk (any kind!) in a saucepan until it dances at the edges. Don’t let it boil, or it’ll scorch.
  2. Melt: Remove from heat and whisk in the chopped white chocolate until smooth and creamy.
  3. Matcha Magic: Sift in your matcha, honey, and salt. Whisking vigorously is key to avoiding clumps.
  4. Pour and Enjoy: Divide the emerald goodness between mugs and top with toasted marshmallows for a touch of campfire coziness.

Notes & Tips

  • Milk Frother: Use a handheld frother for velvety milk.
  • Crave a richer texture? Add a bit more white chocolate.
  • Skip the soggy marshmallows. Use a kitchen torch or broiler for melty, gooey perfection.
  • For an extra creamy hot chocolate, use heavy cream instead of milk.
  • If you don’t have a matcha whisk, you can use a fork or a small whisk to froth the matcha.
  • Get creative with your toppings! Try adding some whipped cream, cinnamon, or a drizzle of chocolate syrup.

Storing and Preserving

Leftovers? Not likely, but if any, store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Reheat gently on the stovetop, whisking to avoid clumps.

Questions You May Have

1. What else can I add?

Mint, ginger, even a shot of espresso are great contenders.

2. This is too fancy! Simple version?

Just mix matcha and your favorite hot chocolate powder with hot milk. Deliciousness achieved.

3. Can I use chocolate chips?

Sure, but melt them separately first, or they won’t blend smoothly.

4. Is this recipe vegan?

Absolutely! Use plant-based milk and dairy-free chocolate.
