Created by pastry chef Jen Yee, Matcha Chocolate Truffles take the traditional chocolate truffle and adorn it with green tea powder.

With a day bakery and restaurant in New York City, Jen Yee is one of the city's most recognized chefs. Yee is no stranger to stretching pastry boundaries and constantly puts unconventional twists on iconic pastry favorites. Her most recent creation -- Matcha Chocolate Truffles -- features a firm yet silky chocolate truffle covered with green tea powder. Matcha is high in antioxidants, it burns calories and detoxifies the body.
