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!


Scale

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 (affiliate link) 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 (affiliate link) with the avocado and pulse until mixture is completely combined and avocado is no longer visible. If you don’t have a food processor (affiliate link) 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.

  1. What brilliant truffeles that I’d ever made such easy! I taste freshness comes from avo like mint. I’d keep it my freezer for my treat, also make it more for valentine’s day:)Thanks for sharing the recipe.

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

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