  • 4 oz dark chocolate at least 70% cacao coarsely chopped
  • 1-2 ripe avocados*. peeled pitted, and mashed
  • pinch sea salt
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder


  • Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pot of boiling water.
  • Remove bowl from heat and mix in the avocado and sea salt. Combine well- the mixture should be quite thick. Cover the bowl and chill until the mixture can be rolled into balls, about 1 hour.
  • Sprinkle the cocoa powder on a piece of parchment paper. Use a melon baller or a spoon to form the truffles into 3/4-inch balls. Roll each truffle in cocoa powder, then arrange them in a single layer on a serving plate or dish.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.


*I used 2 medium sized avocados. If your avocados are large, you may want to start with just one, and adjust to a bit more for the right consistency.
