Matcha White Chocolate Pralines with Pistachios

Recipe from What's For Lunch, Honey? 


300g white chocolate, coarsely chopped
75 ml milk
2 teaspoons Matcha powder
100g pistachios, finely chopped


Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Heat the milk in a saucepan until steaming. Add the matcha powder and stir to dissolve. Add the chocolate in portions, stirring until each portion has melted.

Pour the chocolate-matcha mixture into a bowl and refrigerate for about 1 hour.

Once cooled, take out and using the whisk attachment of your hand-mixer, beat the chocolate-match mixture until light and creamy. Fill the cream in a piping bag and pipe out chocolate balls the size of cherries on the baking tray.

Place the tray back into the refrigerator for another 30 minutes. In the meantime put the pistachios into a large bowl and set aside.

Take the pralines out of the refrigerator. Using the palms of your hands quickly roll each chocolate portion into smooth balls. Place the pralines into the bowl with the pistachios and gently toss them, coating the pralines with the nuts.
