Green Tea Matcha Fudge

A few years ago I went through a phase of being crazy about baking with green tea matcha powder, I used to use it to make cupcakes and to mix it with ice cream. Since I was pregnant last year, I had decided to cut out caffeine and did not use green tea matcha powder any more. This week I decided that I would buy some green tea matcha powder and do some experimenting to see what I could make.

The first idea that I came up with was to make green tea matcha fudge. I figured that this would be the easiest thing to start off with. I ended up using the easy fudge recipe that I usually use, but instead I added green tea matcha powder.

The green tea matcha fudge did not take very long to make and was ready in 2 hours.

The green tea matcha fudge tasted really nice, the fudge was creamy and was moreish.  The green tea matcha fudge did not bitter because I carefully added green tea matcha powder bit by bit before I got the consistency right.

What should I make next using green tea matcha powder?
