Description

These strawberries are stuffed with delicious matcha vanilla bean cream cheese and decorated with white chocolate leaves. Matcha powder is used to beautifully and naturally add a bright green colour. Everyone will love these.


Ingredients

Scale

6 strawberries

chocolate leaves & drizzle

2 ounces (56.7 g) white chocolate, chopped

fresh mint leaves

1 teaspoon matcha powder

matcha vanilla bean cream cheese frosting

2 ounces (56.7 g) cream cheese, room temperature

3/4 tablespoon (10.65 g) salted butter, room temperature

1/2 vanilla bean (see notes for substitution)

3/4 teaspoon matcha powder

1/4 cup (32 g) powdered sugar


Instructions

chocolate leaves

Visit my easy chocolate leaves [with video] post for detailed instructions. The leaves can be made a day or two ahead of time if you'd like. Use the small leaves near the top of the mint plant so that they will fit into the strawberries. You need a dozen leaves, but I recommend making a few extra in case any break. Cover and set aside remaining chocolate for drizzle later. 

After chilling the leaves and removing the mint, use a dry paintbrush to gently dab matcha powder onto the leaves. Store the chocolate leaves in fridge until needed.

matcha cream cheese frosting

Beat cream cheese and butter together until fluffy.

Cut into vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Add seeds and matcha powder to bowl with the cream cheese and butter mixture. Mix well to combine. Stir in powdered sugar and mix well.

stuffed strawberries

Using a small knife, hull strawberries - you want the hole to be large enough to fit lots of frosting and the leaves.

Use a small spoon to stuff the matcha cream cheese frosting evenly into the strawberries (about a tablespoon each).

Take chocolate leaves out of the fridge, and insert two into the frosting of each strawberry.

Take double boiler with reserved chocolate from making the leaves and put it back over simmering water to remelt the chocolate. Pour the chocolate into a pastry bag or zip-top bag (cut a tiny hole in own corner). Use it to drizzle chocolate over the berries. Store strawberries in fridge until you are ready to enjoy them.


Notes

You can substitute vanilla bean seeds for 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract.
