There’s something in the air … Can you feel it? No, it’s not spring fever. It’s matcha fever. Here we’ll share tasty, fun ways to put this hot ingredient to cool use.

Matcha–White Chocolate Bark

Gorgeous, incredibly easy to make, and with an I-can-put-my-finger-on-that-flavor yumminess—we love everything about this fruity chocolate bark. The earthy taste of the matcha enhances the flavor of the tart cherries, but the real key to deliciousness is that flake salt on top. If you don’t have flake salt (though we’d love for you to go get some), you can sub a crunchy sea salt.

1  (12-ounce) bag white chocolate chips
1  tablespoon matcha powder
1/3  cup dried tart cherries, coarsely chopped
2  tablespoons sliced almonds, toasted
1/2  teaspoon flaky sea salt

1. Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH 11/2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until chocolate melts and is smooth. Stir in matcha.

2. Immediately spread chocolate mixture into a thin layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Immediately sprinkle with cherries, almonds, and salt. Place pan in refrigerator for 15 minutes or until set. Break into pieces.
