    Dark Chocolate Avocado Truffles
    Recipe originally posted on,  Not Your Average College Food.
    Makes 18 to 20
    1 medium avocado
    10 ounces dark chocolate chips, divided
    ​2 tablespoons cocoa powder

    Cut avocado and scoop out flesh. Use a fork, an electric hand mixer, or a food processor to mash the avocado until there are no more chunks.Roughly chop 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Set aside.Use a microwave to melt the rest of the chocolate chips. I recommend microwaving in 10-second intervals, stirring after each, until the mixture is completely melted.Scoop avocado mixture into the bowl with melted chocolate and mix until well-blended. Then, stir in the chocolate chip bits.Refrigerate the chocolate-avocado mixture for an hour.Scoop out 1 tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a ball using your palms. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.Put the cocoa powder on a separate plate or in a shallow bowl. Roll the balls in the cocoa powder until they're completely covered.
