Easy // 15 mins // 15 to 20 Truffles
Many people don’t know about this great Avo hack. Fun family project w/ kids, scrumptious, nutritious & craveable.
- 1/2 Cup Avocado, diced
- 8 Ounces Chocolate Chips, dark chocolate or semi sweet
- Pinch Salt
- 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 Tbs Brown Sugar
- 2 Tbs Water, Brewed Coffee or Tea, Bourbon, Rum or Brandy
- Cocoa powder, coconut, cacao nibs, sprinkles, green tea, sea salt, flavored sugars, etc.
Melt all ingredients except avocado over lowest heat or in microwave in 5 second bursts. Stir frequently. Cool slightly, then mash in avocado with fork or potato masher. Chill well.
Form into rough small balls about 1 Tbs each. They are called truffles because they should look misshapen like the exotic truffles sniffed out of the Italian landscape by pigs and dogs. Roll partially in your favorite flavorings and chill again. Serve chilled.
If you’re learning to love the taste and texture of avocados this is a great preparation to try. If you’d like to mask the taste of the avocado completely, add in 1 Tbs coconut oil to the chocolate chip mix. I used 63% dark chocolate chips. Semi sweet chips make for a sweeter truffle.
