Some of our favorite sweets have gone green and risen in popularity over the last few years, see: Pocky and Kit Kat. October is a perfect time of year to get creative in the kitchen, and cooking with matcha is a unique way to mix up your classic recipes. Matcha’s green color makes it the perfect element for spooky, monster-themed cookies and drinks. We are excited to share a few of our favorite Halloween matcha desserts!
