Matcha Chocolate Cups

Matcha Chocolate Cups

The Hidden Grinch

Christmas time is supposed to be white, at least in my childhood it used to be so. Global warming has played a part in it it seems, so no sleighing nor skating this time. But chocolate suits into any weather nevertheless and Christmas trees into winter time as well. 🎄✨

Sometimes, I like to spend hours in my kitchen mixing and measuring and just enjoying the slow process. Other times, I prefer to make something fast and effortless. To have a dessert ready for a crazy craving attack or just in case for unexpected visitors. These Matcha Chocolate Cups became my number one gift during the Christmas time this year. I think edible present making cannot get any easier!

Christmas themed Matcha Chocolate Cups are:
  • Easy and fast to make
  • Only few ingredients needed
  • Raw
  • Vegan
  • Heartmelting 😉

Dark chocolate cups filled with matcha cashew chocolate cream and decorated with sugar glaze.
I am using Terre Exotique Matcha powder. I find their product very clean with a pure taste. Truly recommend!
