What do you get when you mix avocados + chocolate chips? Avocado Truffles 🙌 We make these all. the. time. and they don’t usually stick around long enough for me to take photos… We hope you enjoy this super easy, super indulgent treat as much as we do!
Avocado Truffle Balls
2 ripe avocados
1 1/2 cup chocolate chips (we like Enjoy Life chips because they’re almost paleo, dairy free, etc.)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup pecan pieces *optional
1/2 cup almond flour (for coating)
2 tablespoons cocoa powder (for coating)
*you can also roll these in toasted coconut flakes, just almond flour, arrowroot, or crushed nuts of choice.
MASH: Scoop out avocados into a medium sized bowl and use a fork, potato masher or your hands and mash until smooth and creamy. Add vanilla, stir, and set aside. You might still have some lil chunks and that’s OK.
MELT: Pour chocolate chips into a separate, microwave-safe, bowl and nuke in 15 second increments until melted, stirring each time – should take approx. 1 minute total, depending on your microwave. You can totally also melt these on the stove top over very low heat OR in a double-boiler if that’s your preferred method.
MIX: Once melted, stir chocolate into the avocado and place in the fridge for about 20-30 mins to help thicken it up a bit.
ROLL: Ok, time to get messy… Place your preferred coating (highly recommend the almond flour + cocoa noted above) into a bowl and set aside. Get out your truffle mix and a spoon and start scoopin’ and rollin’ into lil balls. I’d recommend about a tablespoon size. Roll the balls into the coating and repeat.
ENJOY! Once you’ve rolled the entire lot, you can eat them right away or store them in an airtight container in the fridge.
