Healthy Avocado Chocolate Truffles

Healthy Avocado Chocolate Truffles

These chocolate truffles are so rich and delicious, no one will know that the secrete ingredient is avocado. 

I was amazed by this recipe. Really. I had read all about using avocado instead of butter in brownies and cakes, but when the idea for using it in truffles came to me, I was hesitant. Would it taste like avocado? And what would the texture be? 

It turns out that you can’t taste the avocado at all (make sure to use good-quality dark chocolate) and the texture is so silky smooth. If you’re looking for something that tastes sinful but is actually healthy, then this is the recipe for you! 

For the full recipe, head over to Lose It! Blog. Below are some tips and tricks for making these delicious, chocolatey bites. 

To make these truffles, start with good quality ingredients, especially the chocolate. 

Next, melt the chocolate using a double-broiler. As I don’t have an actual double-broiler, I just placed a heat-proof bowl over a pot of simmering water. Do not use a glass bowl! Also be sure that no liquid gets into the chocolate while it melts, otherwise it’ll seize a.k.a get clumpy and not at all suited for rolling into truffles. 

Once the chocolate is melted, add mashed avocado and stir well to combine. Chill mixture in fridge until firm, then roll into tablespoon-sized balls. Roll balls in cocoa powder and/or powdered sugar to coat.

Enjoy right away or store in fridge for up to 3-4 days.
