Prep time: 20 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes
Serves: 5 cookies
1 packet of Kez’s Kitchen Raw Cookies (5 cookies), chilled* This can be bought at most Coles and Woolworths in the health aisle! Or shop online here-
200g white chocolate
1 1/2 teaspoon Matcha Maiden matcha powder
1/4 cup (30g) raw pistachio nuts, chopped
1 tablespoon desiccated coconut, toasted
Add pistachios and coconut to separate small bowls for dipping.
- In a small pot add 2 cups of boiling water and place a bowl on top of the pot. Ensure the water is not touching the base of the bowl. Keep pot on a low to medium heat*
- Break up white chocolate and add to bowl. Melt chocolate, stirring if necessary. Turn off heat. Add green tea powder. Stir to combine.
- Dip half of each cookie in the green tea chocolate, and then in either the pistachio or coconut.
- Place cookies on a tray or plate and put in fridge for 20minutes to set.
*Can’t be bothered doing it the long way? Pop the white chocolate into a glass bowl into a microwave for 60 seconds at a time, checking on it regularly in case it burns!
NOTE: Pre-chilling the cookies will help the matcha white chocolate set faster. Use either choc nut or peanut raw cookies.
