Matcha Brownies With Cream Cheese And White Chocolate

Prep Matcha Brownies

A beautiful combination of dark chocolate brownies and cheesecake matcha topping is hearty enough to be a wonderful dessert. Thick chocolate layer compliments the tender matcha topping decorated with a unique pattern for the best brownies you have tried.

This eye-pleasing dessert will definitely be the talk of a day when you make it. It is a perfect opportunity to spend some time with your loved ones, especially if you have kids, and have fun while creating different patterns for your matcha double brownies.

These brownies are best served fresh with some milk, orange juice, or lemonade. However, you can keep them in the refrigerator up to five days, or even freeze for a couple of months.

Freezing these delicious brownies can be very handy for some unexpected guests and they only take about 20-30 minutes to defrost completely. And, honestly, they look amazing! I like to divide them into smaller batches and have my own little stash of these beautiful brownies all the time.

Mixing Matcha Brownies

This recipe includes chocolate in both layers for a fine taste everybody loves. However, if you're trying to cut down a couple of calories, or simply prefer a less sweet dessert, you can combine cream cheese with some heavy cream, matcha green tea powder, and different extract for a beautiful, but less sweet flavor.

Another great idea is to add matcha green tea powder into your favorite cheesecake recipe for the second layer of these brownies. The brownie layer can also be combined with matcha green tea powder and baked on its own for a simple and super-fast brownies recipe you will love. Whatever you prefer, make sure to prepare a lot of these mouthwatering brownies for the entire family!
