I was trying to think of culinary treats that had a good shelf life, would travel well for gift giving and homemade marshmallows fit the bill. I adapted Alton Brown’s trusty marshmallow recipe to include matcha powder. These chewy, bouncy Matcha Marshmallows are the ultimate treat for anyone who loves matcha like I do! Marshmallows are usually pretty sweet, so I love how the matcha powder balances it out. Since these have a very strong matcha flavor, it’s important to use a good quality matcha powder. They’re yummy on their own as a treat, but you can also drop these marshmallows into hot milk to make a matcha latte – how cool is that? Package them up with these cute gift tags and you’re going to make anyone’s day better.
