Dark Chocolate Avocado Truffles
Insanely decadent, creamy, fudgie, vegan Dark Chocolate Avocado Truffles. No one will ever guess there's healthy green stuff in them!
- 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
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!!!
