If you’re a chocoholic, like me, you know the struggle of balancing your chocolate with your guilt. Luckily, I came across a recipe about a year ago that made that balance a lot more manageable.
Avocado and chocolate might sound like a weird combination at first, but that first bite will have you singing a different tune.
To make them, you only need 2 ingredients!
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate.
Melt your chocolate in a double boiler. (If you don’t have a double boiler, just heat a pot of water on the stove and put another pot or glass bowl over that.)
Now mash up your avocado!
Once your avocado is mashed and your chocolate is melted, go ahead and combine them.
Mix them together until it is as smooth as you can get it. (Mine always has some lumps).
At this point, you can go ahead and chill your mixture, or you can separate it out into equal parts and then chill it.
Just use whatever you have on hand.
Once chilled (at least an hour in the fridge), go ahead and roll them into perfect little spheres. (Remember the cake pops?)Perfection.
Your hands are going to get really messy during this step. Like REALLY messy.
Now chill them again. Another hour or overnight; whatever you prefer.
When you’re ready, take them out and coat them in cocoa powder.
You could eat them at this point, but the cocoa powder will probably find it’s way right into your lungs, so I think it’s best to get rid of the excess powder. The easiest way I have found is to toss them into a sieve and tumble them around.
You could also brush them off with a bbq brush if you want.
NOW they’re ready to eat!
And you don’t have to feel too bad about it.
