How to Make Chocolate Matcha Bark

Recipe makes 4 servings.

Ingredients:

  • 170g dark chocolate chips
  • 85g white chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 scoop Vital Proteins® Matcha Collagen
  • 35g pistachios

Method:

  • Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and measure out each of the ingredients.
  • Melt the dark chocolate chips in the microwave for 1 minute, stopping to stir every 20 seconds. Should you choose to melt on the hob instead, keep the temperature on a low heat, continuously stirring until smooth. Once melted, spread the chocolate over the greaseproof paper.
  • Place the baking tray into the fridge or freezer for a minimum of 5 minutes. While the dark chocolate is cooling, begin to melt the white chocolate chips in the same way. Once the white chocolate is melted, stir in the melted coconut oil and matcha collagen powder until smooth.
  • Remove the baking tray from the fridge or freezer and spread or drizzle the white chocolate mix over the dark chocolate.
  • Feel free to get creative here! While the white chocolate mixture remains in its liquid form, add the pistachios to create a crunchy topping.
