  • Spoon out the avocado flesh from it's skin and place in a food processor. Let the chocolate cool slightly then add the chocolate mixture and blitz until comletely smooth and thickened. Place the mixture in the fridge to solidfy a little more for 15-20 minutes.
  • Once out the fridge, roll into little bowls using a teaspoon as measurement and place onto a plate or tray covered in baking parchment. Once you have your truffles, roll them in some desicated coconut or nuts or your choice ( I really like chopped hazelnuts ). Enjoy at room tempeture and store in the fridge.
