Genmaicha Mendiants

Genmaicha Mendiants

Makes 16 candies.


- 1 cup semi-sweet or white chocolate
- 2 packets Yamamotoyama’s Powdered Genmaicha
- 1 Tbsp loose-leaf Yamamotoyama’s Genmaicha, tender leaves & toasted rice only


  1. In a small mixing bowl, melt the chocolate in a microwave in 20 second bursts until the chocolate is just melted. Be careful not to overheat. If you plan on gifting the mendiants or serving them several days later, you’ll want to temper your chocolate.
  2. Mix the powdered Genmaicha into the melted chocolate.
  3. Spoon out 1 Tbsp dollops of chocolate onto a large baking sheet fitted with parchment. Scatter some loose leaf Genmaicha atop the flattened dollops. Wait for the chocolate to set up completely, then serve!
