4-Ingredient Chocolate Avocado Truffles

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.

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.

WATCH HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY CHOCOLATE AVOCADO TRUFFLES:

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!

Chocolate Avocado Truffle Ingredients

You only need FOUR simple ingredients to whip up these truffles and if you’re like me you probably have all of the ingredients sitting in your kitchen right now!

  • mashed avocado
  • dark chocolate chips – I used Enjoy Life, which is dairy-free and soy-free , but I also love Lily’s because it’s lower in sugar and calories and are also dairy-free.
  • cocoa powder
  • sea salt

How to Make Chocolate Avocado Truffles

Pulse avocado – Add avocado and a sprinkle of sea salt to a food processor and pulse a few times to combine.

Melt dark chocolate – Place chips in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave using 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until completely melted and smooth. It will likely take 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave). Make sure you don’t scorch the chocolate! Stop heating as soon as it’s melted. You can also do this with a double broiler.

Add chocolate – 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.

Chill – Place truffle mixture in the fridge to set for 30 minutes.

Make truffles – 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.

Roll in cocoa powder or sprinkle with salt – 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.

No one will never guess these decadent 4-ingredient chocolate 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!

How to Store Homemade Truffles

Store avocado truffles in the fridge for about 7 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. If you keep the truffles in the freezer, be sure to bring it out and let it rest for 5-10 minutes before eating because the chocolate will be really hard.

      These were so easy and yummy! I doubled the recipe and made 25 small truffles, and added some vanilla and espresso powder to the batter. I rolled some in cocoa powder and some in crushed pistachios. I’ll definitely be making them again to keep in the fridge as a treat for myself!

      Question: Is it possible to use a vitamixer in lieu of a food processor?

      Just finished making these. OMG!!! The easiest and most decadent Christmas treats. I rolled them in cocoa, walnuts, chocolate sprinkles and half cocoa/walnut toppings. It was hard to stop at 2. I’m taking the rest to school tomorrow to share with my co-workers. Yummy. I LOVE your site. I’m slowly making my way through your other recipes.

          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! 🙂

      Mine were too soft to roll. I wonder what I did wrong….

        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?

    17. Denise
      January 4, 2018 AT 4:31 pm

      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.

      December 29, 2016 AT 7:28 pm

      These look so interesting, i guess avocado makes everything delicious.

      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.
