    Chocolate Avocado Truffles

    Satisfy your sweet tooth and dig into dark chocolate while also getting a boost of fiber and folate. Sound too good to be true? This Chocolate Avocado Truffle recipe swaps traditional oils and fats for avocado, resulting in a lighter take on a decadent favorite.



    1 ripe avocado
    5 oz dark chocolate (try to avoid using chocolate chips)
    2 tbsp brown sugar
    ¼ tsp vanilla extract
    tsp salt
    2 ½ tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (separated)


    Pit the avocado and mash the flesh with a fork until completely smooth and lump free. Melt the chocolate in either the microwave or on the stove, taking care not to burn it. Once melted, stir in the mashed avocado, brown sugar, vanilla extract, salt, and 1½ tbsp of the cocoa powder until thoroughly combined. Place the truffle mixture into the fridge for 30-40 minutes and let cool until partially set. Use a small ice cream scooper or tablespoon to dollop out the truffles and form balls with your hands. Roll in the remaining 1 tbsp of cocoa powder. Last step, enjoy!
