Recipe courtesy of Aiya

Ingredients:

·         6 small granny smith apples

·         6-8 ounces white chocolate chips

·         1 tsp Aiya Cooking Grade Matcha

·         Chocolate Sprinkles; as needed

·         Chopped nuts of your choice; as needed

·         Other desired toppings

·         Popsicle sticks or any other stick

Directions:

  1. Wash and remove stems from granny smith apples. (You can use your favorite red apple for a sweeter result)
  2. Pierce the sticks into the apple, where the stem had been removed.
  3. Pour 6-8 ounces (appx ½ bag) white chocolate chips into a microwavable bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, and then microwave for 30 more seconds. If the chocolate chips are not yet melted, microwave some more in 10 second intervals.
  4. Sift 1 tsp. Aiya Cooking Grade Matcha over the melted chocolate. Stir using a spoon until incorporated.
  5. Dip and coat the apples with Matcha white chocolate mixture. It helps to use the front of a spoon to “carve” the Matcha chocolate mixture onto the apple.
  6. Dip the bottom third of the apple into your desired toppings.
  7. Place onto parchment paper to dry.
  8. Enjoy!
