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 – you only need half an avocado, but you could easily double the recipe to use the whole thing!
  • dark chocolate chips – I used Enjoy Life dark chocolate chips, which are dairy-free and soy-free, but I also love Lily’s dark chocolate chips because it’s lower in sugar and calories and are also dairy-free.
  • cocoa powder – this is optional, to roll the truffles around in.
  • sea salt – if you don’t want to roll your truffles in cocoa powder, you can sprinkle them with sea salt! I recommend a course 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 the 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 it 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 the 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. Another option is to skip the cocoa powder dusting 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.

      Couldn’t read the recipe. Ads were popping up one after another covering the recipe.

      These are awesome! The first time I made them I used cashew butter(I have a food sensitivity to almonds). Instead of chocolate chips I made the chocolate sauce with cacao powder. The second time I made them I used coconut butter. The ones with coconut butter rolled easier, but I liked the taste of the ones with cashew butter a little bit better. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

      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?
