  • 52 grams white chocolate buttons
  • 1 teaspoon matcha
  • ¾ cup milk


  • Add the white chocolate, matcha, and milk to a microwave-safe container.
    White chocolate and matcha tea powder
  • Microwave until the milk is steaming, but not boiling.
    A few seconds in the microwave melts the chocolate and heat the milk.
  • Use a whisk or hand blender to emulsify the white chocolate, milk, and matcha incorporating air into the mixture as you whisk. If you're using a hand blender, you can tip the blender to the side just a bit to get it to add more air.
    Emulsifying the milk together with the white chocolate and matcha gives the matcha hot chocolate a frothy head.
  • Pour the matcha hot chocolate into your favorite insulated glass and enjoy!
