Ingredients:
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.

Directions:
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.
