  • Once truffles have cooled, roll the truffles into small balls. Lightly dust in cocoa powder.

  • You can store these healthy chocolate truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. I would not recommend freezing them.

Tips for making Healthy Chocolate Truffles

  • Use very ripe avocados. The avocados I used were almost too ripe as you can see the browning start to occur. You want the avocados to be soft and easily scoop-able
  • Use a chocolate with no dairy + minimal sugar.  This is the one I like.
  • Use a food processor – I find this is easier to do in a food processor than a blender, but you can use a blender too! This food processor is one of my favorite kitchen tools!
