Chocolate truffles with avocado
Merry Christmas (and Hanukkah) lovelies! I hope you are all having an amazing holiday surrounded by your loved ones and lots of delicious food ❤︎ I have been trying to stay offline for a couple of days to just enjoy my Christmas holiday and the company of my family, but I wanted to stop by and wish you all a merry Christmas + announce the final giveaway winner AND share the recipe for these beyond delicious chocolate truffles! It was previously only available in Danish, so I though it was about time I made it available in English as well – I mean, it sure would be the perfect Christmas holiday project ;)
These beyond delicious (and beyond easy to make) chocolate truffles are one of the best combinations of chocolate and avocado that I have ever tried! Even though the combination of cacao/chocolate and avocado are quite common in the health food community, it is sadly still seen as a very odd paring to many, which is such a shame because they really go perfectly together! The avocado makes the chocolate truffles so fudgy and perfect in texture – they basically melt in your mouth! I really wish I still had some left, sharing pictures of drool-worthy creations that I have already eaten long ago are the worst! Haha I guess I will just have to make another batch soon ;)
Oh and before I forget, the winner of my 4th and final Christmas giveaway is Johanne! I will send you an email right away ❤︎
You can find the recipe in Danish right here!
1 ripe avocado
100 grams dark chocolate (I used one with 70 % cacao), melted
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 tablespoons cacao powder
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla powder
1/6 teaspoon sea salt
Start by mashing the avocado until it is completely smooth (you can do this with a fork, but I personally prefer to blend it so there is no clumps or texture left). Add the mashed avocado to a bowl along with the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Refrigerate the mixture for about 30 minutes until it is firm enough to handle. Roll the mixture into 18 little dessert balls, top them with a little chopped chocolate if you’d like and store them in an airtight container in the fridge until serving, enjoy!
Note: They keep for 3-4 days in the fridge.
