- 1⁄2 lb bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
- 3⁄4 cup fat-free half-and-half
- 4 decaffeinated green tea bags
- 1⁄4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- Place chocolate in medium bowl. In small saucepan, bring half-and-half to a simmer over medium heat. Remove from heat and add tea bags. Allow to steep 5 minutes.
- Gently squeeze tea bags over half-and-half to extract extra flavor and discard. Return to a simmer and then pour over chocolate. Stir to combine. Place bowl in freezer and chill until set, about 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes. When mixture hardens, scoop out 2 teaspoons and roll in palms to form 1-inch ball. Repeat with remaining chocolate mixture.
- Place cocoa in shallow dish. Roll balls in cocoa to coat. Shake off excess. Serve or store in airtight container in refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
The texture was right, but it really didn't taste like green tea. It was missing something flavorwise. I added minced candied ginger and I also rolled them in powderized candied ginger, and that did the trick.
