Matcha moss chocolate Easter cakes (Cupcakes de chocolate con té matcha )








I  prepared this recipe especially to celebrate Easter,  and adapt this recipe from Thirsty for Tea (a beautiful blog)because her recipe to make the moss is wonderful (matcha).

 I wanted to use chocolate bunnies but there were only big ones. Finally I made cookies with a bunny shape but you can use whatever you want.
 I saw many moss recipes but this one was the best, with green tea, ground flax seeds and coconut. Delicious and healthy
And finally for garnish I used Rose buds petals (dried)
Usually are for tea but are beauty and edible.

The recipe for chocolate cakes is for 6 (for me Ok) but you can double the amount if you want more.
I wish everyone a Happy and blessed Easter to all!
