✏️ Recipe creation
I’m a huge matcha lover, and ever since my first piece of creamy nama matcha chocolate, I’ve wanted to create an easy homemade version.
This matcha green tea fudge is just as soft, creamy and full of Japanese matcha flavour. It also lasts up to a month so it’s great to make ahead and keep.
No slow-cooker or candy thermometer, this matcha white chocolate fudge is made with condensed milk as the secret ingredient.
This easy matcha microwave fudge recipe is simple and perfect for gifting to friends and family.
This matcha fudge recipe calls for the following ingredients:
- Matcha powder: use a high-quality ceremonial or culinary grade.
- Sweetened condensed milk
- White chocolate: use cooking chocolate or melting wafers for ease of melting.
- Vanilla extract (optional): use extract or paste over essence for best flavour.
See the recipe card for quantities.
Top tip: For accuracy, it’s best to weigh your ingredients rather than using cups.
♻️ Substitutions / Variations
Swap your white chocolate for milk chocolate for a chocolate matcha fudge version.
I like to add vanilla extract to my green tea fudge to make it more like a matcha latte, but this is optional.
Turn your matcha candy boozy by stirring in ½ tablespoon of brandy to your fudge mixture – just like Royce’s matcha nama chocolate!
Cut pieces of matcha KitKat or matcha Lindt chocolate and press them into the top of your fudge before it sets for even more matcha goodness.
You can also stir in other extras like macadamia nuts or white chocolate chips to your fudge mixture before pouring it into the tin.
Steps 1 - 2: In a bowl, sieve the matcha powder into the condensed milk and stir until smooth.
Step 3: Break white chocolate into pieces in a microwaveable bowl and pour the matcha mixture over it. Microwave in 20sec bursts, stirring between, until the chocolate has only just melted.
Step 4: Stir the vanilla into the melted mixture (if using).
Step 5: Pour the matcha fudge mixture into an 8-inch baking tin lined with greaseproof paper and smooth the top.
Step 6: Refrigerate for at least 1hr until set. Cut into small squares and enjoy!

💭 Top tips
- Use white chocolate from the baking aisle for ease of melting. Make sure to break your chocolate into small, even pieces if you don’t use white chocolate chips.
- Melt your chocolate mixture slowly using no more than 20sec bursts in the microwave to prevent it from burning or separating.
- Even if your baking pan is non-stick, line your tin with baking parchment or greaseproof paper. Leave a small overhang of paper to make it easier to lift your fudge out of the tin after it sets.
- You can decorate your matcha fudge by dusting it with more matcha powder or powdered icing sugar before cutting.
- Cut your green tea chocolate fudge into small pieces for bite-size fudge squares. I cut mine into 36 pieces by cutting the whole fudge slab in half, then each of those halves into half again. Rotate your slab 90 degrees and repeat.
