Guimauve à Matcha or Green tea marshmallow: Bitter taste that you will enjoy.

I love to play with Marshmallow ^^, as I told you before I always have a lot of egg white (due to the fact that my family love to eat ice cream), and finding the recipe to use it is one of my work too.



 But I don’t want to make the same flavor all the time so I try to make the new flavor each time that I make it.
This time I try to make Matcha marshmallow, as it’s one of my sister’s favorite, and she told me many times that she want to eat the home made one.
The first time I used too much of green tea powder, as I wanted my marshmallow to have a real green tea taste, but the result is not as I expected. Too much of it, makes the marshmallow too bitter to enjoy -*-.
 The second time I have to reduce the matcha amount, I love the taste but some people still say that it’s too bitter, so think about my recipe as a guide, you can use less or more of the Matcha, it depend on your taste and your Matcha too. But for me a bit of bitter taste is good because the sweetness from the marshmallow will be cut down and I can enjoy it more ^^.  
Well, I hope that you will fall in love with making Marshmallow too, because I think that I will have a lot of marshmallow recipes to share, haha.
