So we recommended you make double the mixture, half for you, half for a friend :)
These Creamy Raw Chocolate Avocado Truffles are: Vegan, Gluten-Free, Refined Sugar Free, Perfect for gifting
3 ripe and ready avocados
1 cup CHOC CHICK cacao powder
¼ cup CHOC CHICK cacao butter (approx. 24 beans)
¼ cup cashew butter
¼ cup + 2 tbsp maple syrup
A drop of peppermint (optional)
A Pinch of salt
½ cup chopped pistachios, for coating
½ cup desiccated coconut, for coating
½ cup CHOC CHICK cacao powder, for coating
Put the avocado flesh into a food processor, and process until it’s smooth and creamy.
Add in the cacao powder, melted cacao butter, cashew butter, maple syrup, peppermint and salt. Process again for a couple of minutes, until all of the ingredients are combined and you have a smooth ganache.
Put the ganache into the fridge to firm up for half an hour, or until the ganache is firm enough to roll.
Using a teaspoon, scoop a little of the ganache into your hand (approx. 20g). Working quickly, shape and roll the truffle in one of the three coatings until fully covered. Put the truffle onto a plate, then repeat this step with the rest of the ganache.
Store the truffles in the fridge for up to 3 days, or keep in the freezer for a longer shelf life.
