Matcha Chocolate Covered Caramels

I took a break in November to try to do Nanowrimo (and failed again, sigh) but I'm back! I thought I'd try a little caramel variation. I made my regular caramel recipe and then I covered it in a mixture of white chocolate couverture and some matcha green tea powder.

I can't remember exactly how much green tea powder, but I think I could have gone a little stronger. I think it was something like this:

2 cups Guittard white chocolate couverture discs
1-2 tsp matcha green tea powder, organic
Hawaiian Black Sea Salt
Caramels
El Rey Semisweet dark chocolate

I put a layer of the dark chocolate on the bottom so it would be easier for dipping (like in the original recipe). Then I tempered the white chocolate, gently mixed in the matcha powder, and dipped some rectangles of caramel in it with a dipping fork.  I finished them with a sprinkling of Hawaiian Black Sea Salt. 


It was pretty yummy, but I definitely think more matcha next time.
