Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup mashed avocado (1 small avocado)
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (about 10 oz.; use a high quality brand)
  • 3 Tbsp. cocoa powder

Instructions

  • Heat chocolate chips in a double boiler* on medium-low heat until melted (about 10 minutes), while stirring with a rubber spatula. Once heated, add to food processor with avocado and pulse until smooth.
  • Chill for 2 - 3 hours in the refrigerator. Remove from refrigerator and use a spoon to scoop out and roll into balls (approximately 2 Tbsp. each).
  • Add cocoa powder to a small bowl. Roll each truffle in coco powder to coat and store truffles in the fridge for up to 3 days. Remove from fridge about half hour before serving.

Notes

*If you don't have a double boiler, place a rimmed bowl into a saucepan that has an inch or two of water in it so that the bottom of the bowl is a few inches above the water. Heat chocolate in the bowl.
