Avocado Truffles

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces 70% dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons pureed avocado, fresh or frozen and defrosted
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1/8 unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Preparation

    1. Melt chocolate in a double boiler over a pot of boiling water or in a bowl over warm water. Stir in avocado and salt. As you stir, it should thicken to a frosting-like texture.

    2. Cover and chill bowl until ganache thickens, about 25 minutes. Using a melon baller, scoop bite-size pieces of ganache and roll them in your hands to form balls. If balls just aren’t forming, refrigerate ganache for 30 minutes more.

    3. Place cocoa powder in a small bowl, then roll each of the truffle balls in cocoa powder to coat. Store them in a cool spot or in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
