Beti’s Reflections

I was strolling through my local Japanese market the other day when I noticed a jar of sesame seeds that immediately piqued my curiosity. I just had to buy it and see what I could come up with! After a bit of experimenting, I stumbled upon a winning combination of classic Japanese flavors that I now present to you as my new favorite dessert: Chocolate Sesame Bliss!

This delectable concoction blends semi-sweet chocolate chips with sesame seeds, honey, butter, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, all-purpose flour, white sugar, matcha powder, and just a pinch of salt. To make this delicious Japanese-inspired treat, start by melting the butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Once melted, add the chocolate chips, sesame seeds, honey, vanilla extract, and ground cinnamon to the pan and stir until the chocolate chips are melted and all of the ingredients are well combined. Remove the pan from the heat. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, salt, and matcha powder. Add this dry mixture to the melted chocolate mixture and stir.

Once combined, roll the mixture into small balls and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving. The result? A heavenly treat that will prove to be a real crowd-pleaser! With its irresistible blend of sweet and savory flavors, this Chocolate Sesame Bliss is sure to tantalize your taste buds and leave you wanting more. The addition of the matcha powder really added an extra depth of flavor to the balls, and I’d definitely make this recipe again! For an even richer flavor, try adding more honey or butter. Enjoy!
