Dark chocolate Avocado truffles

Classic chocolate truffles, except made even better with avocados! Decadent, rich, sweet and chocolatey!!!

Holy creamy goodness.

This is what dreams are made of.

An indulgent chocolate truffle BUT with all the benefits of nutritious avocado.

This was a game changer and has been a family favorite ever since.

You can NOT taste the avocado. I promise!

Perfect way to sneak in some nutrition into those Holiday treats.

Dark chocolate Avocado truffles

Ingredients:

5 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (refer notes), 3/4 cups

1/4 cup mashed ripe avocado, about 1/2 large

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 pinch salt

1/4 cup sliced almonds, chopped or crushed

Preparation:

1. Place chocolate chips in a medium microwavable bowl, microwave on high for 2 to 3 minutes (stirring every 30 seconds), until full melted. Stir in mashed avocado, vanilla extract and salt until completely smooth. Let cool completely at room temperature for several hours, until firm.

2. Pinch pieces of dough to make 10-12 balls. Place chopped almonds in a plate and roll the balls in the nuts, pressing slightly to adhere.

3. Store truffles in the refrigerator for several days. Serve at room temperature.

Makes 10-12 truffles.


Notes:

Try to the best quality chocolate that you can find. I used my all time favorite Ghirardelli.

Confectioners sugar, cocoa powder, other types of chopped nuts, shredded coconut are all great options instead of sliced almonds.

These days of austerity as well as relative panic about taking on debt, most people balk resistant to the idea of using a credit card to make purchase of merchandise or pay for any gift giving occasion, preferring, instead to rely on the actual tried along with trusted method of making repayment - raw cash. However, if you've got the cash there to make the purchase fully, then, paradoxically, this is the best time just to be able to use the card for several good reasons.
