Ingredients

  • 1 small avocado mashed
  • 6 oz dark chocolate chips or dark chocolate chunks
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract or almond extract
  • Cocoa powder for garnish or melted dark chocolate to garnish optional

Instructions

  • Melt chocolate over medium heat in a double boiler. Melt until completely smooth.
  • While chocolate is melting mash avocado with a fork until smooth with no lumps, stir in vanilla or almond extract.
  • Stir mashed avocado into the melted chocolate mixture until smooth and thick in texture.
  • Place in fridge for approximately 20 minutes to firm up chocolate mixture which will allow you to roll it.
  • Scoop into 12 balls and place on a lined baking sheet, roll quickly into balls. Be careful not to handle truffles too long our the heat from your hands will melt the chocolate.
  • Dusting with cocoa powder – place in a bowl and roll one at a time until truffle is coated.
  • Chocolate coating – melt chocolate chips or bakers squares let chocolate mixture cool so truffles do not melt. Once cool but not solid carefully using a spoon coat truffle with chocolate coating. Serve at room temperature.

Notes

Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for a couple weeks.
