Recipe credit: The Castaway Kitchen
Makes 24-26 cookiesMakes 2 bars
For the Chocolate:
- 1 cup Wild Cocoa Butter Wafers
- ¾ cup Wild Chocolate Powder
- 1 tsp Wild Vanilla Powder
- Pinch Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
- 1 tbsp. Raw Honey
For the Matcha:
You will Need
- Small sauce pot
- 2 small glass bowls
- (or a double boiler)
- 2 Candy molds or small containers lined with parchment paper
First make the chocolate:
- Heat water in a small sauce pot over medium heat, place one bowl over it, but make sure it’s not touching the water.
- Add in the cocoa butter wafers and heat until almost all of them are melted.
- Remove from heat and whisk until all of the pieces have turned liquid.
- Add in the chocolate powder, vanilla powder and salt.
- Whisk until fully incorporated.
- Add in the honey and continue whisking until mix is smooth and glassy.
- Let it sit under a fan to continue to cool, stir every few minutes.
Then make the matcha:
- Place your second bowl over the simmering pot of water until the wafers have melted in the same fashion as before.
- Then whisk in the matcha, vanilla and honey. Continue to whisk until glassy.
- Set under a fan to cool. Stir every few minutes.
- When both of the cocoa butter mixes have cooled to the point where they are thick to stir, like melted ice cream, drizzle the chocolate mixture into your mold, remember to leave room for the matcha.
- Drizzle the matcha mixture over the chocolate mixture, then use a knife to create your marble design. Gently drag the tip of a knife in the chocolate to do this.
- Let sit at room temperate until it hardens. You could expedite the process by putting in the fridge, if you’re going to do this, make sure you place your molds over a tray or plate so you can move them.
