🌟Why you’ll love this recipe

  • The hard-crack stage of 295-300F is the key to this recipe hardening properly and producing a perfect toffee. I also share the option of adding baking soda for airiness and lightness, if that is your preference. Also try this churro toffee.
  • Matcha and white chocolate are a great match between the sweetness of the white chocolate and the matcha’s more bitter and earthy flavor profile. You don’t need to use high-grade ceremonial matcha for this to taste amazing – culinary grade matcha works great.
  • Matcha Toffee makes a great edible holiday gift for anyone who likes sweets and matcha.

🧾Ingredients in this recipe

Ingredients on a countertop.
  • matcha powder – this recipe uses culinary grade matcha powder. Here is the matcha powder I usually use. And here is a good matcha powder on Amazon.
  • chocolate chips – you can use any kind of chocolate chip for this recipe. I prefer using white chocolate chips so you can see the green matcha. The sweetness of the white chocolate is also a good balance to the matcha flavor.
  • coconut oil – provides a smoother melting process for the white chocolate and a softer consistency once it sets.
  • baking soda – adds tiny bubbles and air that yield a less rock-hard toffee. You can leave this ingredient out, but the recipe will yield a harder toffee.

Notes

Toffee can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for two weeks. If you find the toffee melting, it means your house is very warm and you should refrigerate it. It also keeps well in the freezer for a month.
