No one will never guess these decadent 4-ingredient chocolate avocado truffles are made with avocado instead of heavy cream. As long as you use dairy-free chocolate chips, these creamy truffles are gluten-free and vegan!

I hope you had a lovely holiday weekend! Isaac has been sick over the past few days so that’s been a bummer, but we’ve made the most of it. We had Indian food for dinner on Friday night with friends, celebrated Christmas with my family on Christmas Eve, had a nice Christmas morning at home just the two of us, and then spent Sunday night celebrating Hanukkah with Isaac’s family. It was perfect… just went by too fast.

I am excited for this coming weekend — both the celebration and the excitement of a new year. 2016 was fine, but I’m ready for a fresh start. Plus, January is always a great month for Eating Bird Food. Everyone is jumping back into healthy habits and/or getting started with a brand new health-focused plan and I love being a resource for that.

All that said, we’re still in celebration mode over here and I have another dessert recipe to share — 4-ingredient chocolate avocado truffles! They’re made with avocado instead of heavy cream, but you can’t taste the avocado at all. All you taste is creamy deliciousness.

Maria and I created this recipe back in August, which feels like years ago at this point. But I wanted to take some time to test the recipe to make sure it was perfect and then decided to wait for the holidays to post it.

And I’m glad I waited because the chocolate avocado truffles have now been taste-tested by numerous people and everyone loves them. Plus, they’re the perfect dessert for New Year’s Eve parties or if you’re planning ahead, they also make a great Valentine’s Day treat.You can either coat each truffle in cocoa powder or simply top them with coarse sea salt. We did a mixture and both are delicious!

4-Ingredient Chocolate Avocado Truffles

Description

No one will never guess these decadent 4-ingredient chocolate avocado truffles are made with avocado instead of heavy cream. As long as you use dairy-free chocolate chips, these creamy truffles are gluten-free and vegan!


Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup mashed avocado (about 1/2 an avocado)
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)
  • cocoa powder
  • sea salt

Instructions

  1. Add avocado and a sprinkle of sea salt to a food processor and pulse a few times to combine.
  2. Melt chocolate chips by placing them in a small microwave-safe bowl and microwaving for 30 seconds. Stir and microwave for another 20 seconds or until all the chocolate chips have melted. (You can also do this with a double boiler). Pour melted chocolate into food processor with the avocado and pulse until mixture is completely combined and avocado is no longer visible. If you don’t have a food processor you can mash the avocado with a fork and combine with the chocolate until smooth and lump-free.
  3. Place truffle mixture in the fridge to set for 30 minutes. Once the mixture has firmed up a bit, remove from fridge and make the truffles by rolling a tablespoon at a time into a 1-inch ball. You should get about 10 truffles. Fill a shallow bowl with cocoa powder and roll each truffle until coated. Place on parchment paper. If you’re going the sea salt route, skip the cocoa powder and simply sprinkle a few sea salt flakes on each truffle. Store in the fridge until ready to serve.

          I was dubious of this recipe at first, but wanted something sweet that wasn’t full of sugar. I decided to make it for a school meeting to try it out and was very pleasantly surprised. My fourteen year old was even okay with them and he is no fan of avacado!

        Freeze them! It’s no problem. They defrost in minutes and are a great summer snack

        hmmm… I haven’t tried it. My only concern is that the texture might change after freezing. You can certainly try it! 🙂

        January 15, 2018 AT 10:54 am

        Hi Elena. They were too soft to roll, even after letting the mixture harden up in the fridge?

      These are amazing! I doubled the recipe but only got 14 truffles. I’m thinking I rolled too big. Next time I’ll downsize!

      What size Avocado are you using?

      1. Brittany Mullins
        December 30, 2016 AT 2:25 pm

        A medium sized avocado. I recommend mashing it and measuring 1/3 cup so you have the exact measurement.

      How many grams of chocolate chips is that? I don’t have chips, just the large block and will need to measure! Thanks!

      1. Brittany Mullins
        December 28, 2016 AT 4:37 pm

        Hi Monika. I just used my kitchen scale and found that 1/2 cup chocolate chips is 3 ounces or about 85 grams. Hope this helps.

      These are brilliant. I am love with any avo/chocolate combo. Would love to make these for NYE. Just wondering, how long will these keep? Thanks!

      1. Brittany Mullins
        December 27, 2016 AT 5:35 pm

        Thanks Stacy! They’re best served fresh since they have the avocado, but they should keep at least 2-3 days in the fridge.
