Serves: 20 truffles

You don’t have to be vegan to make these truffles btw, they are so delicious and much healthier than regular truffles that they should be for everyone. I used avocado instead of cream, and I didn’t add an extra sugar or sweeteners. Apart from tasting delicious they are super easy to make – added bonus! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

Ingredients

  • Chocolate Truffles
  • 1 medium ripe avocado approx ¾ cup
  • 10 oz pure dark chocolate 70% (if vegan use chocolate with no milk fats)
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • pinch salt

 

  • Coatings:
  • desiccated coconut
  • chopped pistachios
  • chopped almonds
  • chopped hazelnuts
  • cocoa powder

Instructions

  1. Gently melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water
  2. Once melted, leave to one side to cool slightly
  3. Scoop the avocado into a bowl, add the pinch of salt and mash it to a fine pulp
  4. Add to the melted chocolate with the vanilla and mix gently together
  5. (if you like your chocolates not too bitter, add a small tbsp of caster sugar and stir in)
  6. Pop in the fridge to set for 1 hour, or until it’s all firm
  7. You can get your coatings ready while it is chilling
  8. Next step is to roll the chocolate into balls
  9. Scoop about 1 small tbsp and quickly roll it in the palm of your hands into a ball
  10. Then roll in which ever coating you want.
  11. Continue this until you have used up all the chocolate
  12. Keep chocolates in the fridge and eat within 2 days
