Easy 4-Ingredient Avocado Truffles

A few days ago I posted a recipe for Zucchini Brownies. In keeping with the healthy veggie and chocolate theme, here's a recipe for Easy 4-Ingredient Avocado Truffles. You'll love the smooth creamy texture of these truffles--and you'll be getting your healthy fats and antioxidants. Basically, you'll be using only four ingredients: dark chocolate, avocado, salt, and cocoa, so these truffles will be low in sugar and high in antioxidants. They're also gluten-free and vegan. And, FYI: you won't taste the avocado, but it will provide the creaminess.


4 ounces 70% dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
3 tablespoons pureed avocado
Pinch of sea salt
1/8 unsweetened cocoa powder

Melt chocolate in double boiler over pot of simmering water. Remove from heat and stir in avocado and salt. Mixture will thicken to frosting-like texture.
Cover and chill bowl until ganache thickens, about 25 minutes. Using melon baller, scoop out small measure of ganache and roll in hands to smooth out into balls. If balls don't form, refrigerate ganache for 30 minutes more.
Put cocoa powder in small bowl, then roll each of truffle balls in cocoa powder to coat.
Store in cool location or in airtight container in the refrigerator.
