Servings 12 truffles
Prep Time 8 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 8 minutes

Ingredients
  

  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips dairy free
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (optional, if you want some heat!)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder unsweetened

Instructions
 

  • Scoop out the avocado flesh into a food processor. Pulse until smooth. (If you don't have a food processor, you can put the avocado flesh into a medium bowl and mash well with a potato masher).
  • Put the chocolate chips into a large microwave-safe bowl and melt for 1 minute at 50% power. Stir and keep microwaving at 10 second intervals until melted, stirring each time.
  • Add the pureed avocado, vanilla, salt and cayenne (if using) to the bowl. Mix well and put in the fridge for 1 hour.
  • Spread out the cocoa powder on a plate. Roll the cold mixture into balls in 1 tbsp-sized amounts and roll the balls in the cocoa powder.
  • Keep your avocado truffles in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Enjoy!
