Ingredients
  

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 5 oz dark baking chocolate bar or good quality dark chocolate bar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder divided
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • optional any other coatings - sprinkles, crushed nuts, shredded coconut

Instructions
 

  • Peel and pit the avocado. In a bowl, mash the avocado with a fork until smooth and lump free.
  • Melt the chocolate. I do this in the microwave at 50% power at 30 second increments, stirring after every 30 seconds until smooth and melted.
  • Stir in mashed avocado, brown sugar, vanilla extract, salt and 1 1/2 tablespoon of cocoa powder until thoroughly combined.
  • Chill the truffle mixture in the fridge for 1-2 hours or until mixture has stiffened up.
  • Using a small cookie scoop or tablespoon, scoop out truffle mixture. Roll into balls with your hands.
  • Roll truffles into remaining 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder or any other desired coatings.
  • Store in fridge. Enjoy!!!
