Dark Chocolate Avocado Truffles


  • 1 medium avocado, mashed
  • 6 ounces dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (divided)
  • Assorted toppings as desired: coconut, crushed nuts, shredded coconut, sprinkles


Melt the chocolate in the microwave or on the stove, taking care not to burn it.

Once melted, stir in the mashed avocado, brown sugar, vanilla extract, salt, and 1 1/2 tablespoons of the cocoa powder until thoroughly combined.

Place the truffle mixture into the fridge for 30-40 minutes to cool until partially set.

Use a mini ice cream scoop or spoon to portion the mixture into balls; then roll them in cocoa powder or topping of choice.

Store up to 1 week in the refrigerator.
