Avocado Vegan Chocolate Truffles
These Avocado Vegan Chocolate Truffles use a secret, heart-healthy ingredient to make them so creamy! Add a little champagne to make them perfect for New years Eve!
Servings 35 Truffles
- 1 1/3 Cup Avocado, mashed 300g (about 2 large avocados)
- 3/4 Cup Better Body Foods Cacao Powder + additional for rolling
- 3/4 Cup Extra dry Champagne (make sure it's vegan!)
- 1 Tbsp Better Body Foods Agave OPTIONAL - omit if you like rich, dark chocolate taste
- Pinch Of sea salt
- 8 Oz Dark Chocolate Dairy free for vegan
Add the mashed avocado and cacao powder into a large food processor and blend until smooth and combined, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary.
Add in the champagne, agave (if using) and a pinch of salt and blend until smooth and combined.
Place the chocolate in a microwave-safe container and heat using half power, and 30 second cooking intervals, stirring between each interval, until smooth and melted.
Add the melted chocolate into the food processor and blend until smooth and combined, scraping down the sides as necessary.
Scrape the mixture into a medium bowl, spreading out evenly. Cover and refrigerate until set, about 2 hours - overnight.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and fill a shallow plate with sides with extra cacao powder. Roll the truffles into lightly heaping 1 Tbsp sized balls (I used a cookie scoop, and made them just a little smaller than the full cookie scoop.) Roll around in the cacao and place onto the prepared pan. *
Do not roll them in sprinkles like in the photo, as the sprinkles do melt.
*Truffles will be a little soft, so your hands will get a little messy, but it's worth it!
Store truffles in the refrigerator if not serving right away.
