Ili •  Jun 26, 2020

Just a few weeks back, we shared a recipe of how you can make Tokyo Banana, one of the most classic Japanese snacks you can get. Today, we’ll be diving into another popular item and that is Royce’ Chocolate, more specifically one of its best-selling products - Nama Chocolates ? 

While you can easily purchase this lovely treat outside of Japan since it has outlets in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia, according to the Royce’ website FAQ section, their chocolates aren’t officially halal-certified as some of their products contain liquor (this includes several of the Nama Chocolate flavours). So if you’ve been itching to have a taste of this Japanese snack without worrying about its halal status, this halal Royce’ Nama Chocolate recipe we’ve got for you is just the thing you need ? So, let’s get started!

  • 1 cup dark chocolate bars, finely chopped into small pieces
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • Salt
  • Cocoa powder for dusting


  • 12cm x 12cm pan


  1. In a saucepan, heat the heavy cream until it hits 50ºC, then turn off the heat.
  2. Stir in butter and dark chocolate and combine until everything has melted. Add a pinch of salt and continue stirring. 
  3. Line the pan with parchment paper and pour in the chocolate mixture. Pop it in the refrigerator for about 3 hours until it has completely set.
  4. Take the pan out and cut the chocolate into equal parts using a hot knife. After every cut, make sure to wipe the knife with a hot towel so you get a clean cut each time. 
  5. Dust the top with a generous amount of cocoa powder, serve and enjoy!


  1. If you'd like to make matcha flavoured ones instead, all you have to do is swap the dark chocolate with white chocolate and dust them with matcha (green tea powder).

With this easy and unique recipe in your arsenal, prepare to indulge in a luxuriously rich and irresistible chocolate dessert anytime you want in the comfort of your own home ?
