Chocolate Avocado Truffles

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 11 truffles
Chocolate truffles are made healthier by using avocado instead of heavy cream. The end result is a rich, silky chocolate treat. With only 3 ingredients, these are really easy to make and are perfect for gifting, parties or just for yourself.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup roughly chopped high quality dark chocolate
  • 1/3 cup completely mashed avocado about ½ of a large avocado
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened dark cocoa powder for dusting

Directions:

  1. In a food processor, blend avocado until completely mashed and no lumps remain. Keep in mind that 1/3 cup of mashed avocado is not the same as 1/3 cup unmashed avocado. So I recommend starting with ½ of a large avocado and mashing it and then measuring it out and only keeping 1/3 cup for your chocolate truffles.
  2. Bring a small pot with water about 1 inch deep to a simmer. Add a bowl on top that is wider than your pot so that it doesn’t touch the water. Place in chocolate and stir until completely melted and smooth.
  3. Add melted chocolate to the food processor and blend until no avocado streaks remain.
  4. Chill the chocolate mixture for about 20-25 minutes in the fridge so that it is slightly less sticky and a little more firm, but still soft and workable. You don’t want to chill the dough too long because then the chocolate will firm up too much.
  5. Measure out 1 tbsp of chocolate mixture and roll between palms to form a smooth, round ball. Repeat with remaining chocolate.  Place finished balls on a sheet of parchment paper.
  6. Spread 1 tbsp cocoa powder onto parchment paper. Roll balls in cocoa powder. Serve immediately or keep in the fridge.
