Healthy Cappuccino Truffles


Description

These healthy cappuccino truffles only have five ingredients – including avocado instead of butter or milk!


Ingredients

  • Adapted from the Detoxinista
  • 6 oz. chocolate (the darker you go the better)
  • 1/3 cup mashed avocado (small avocado)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon instant espresso powder
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, for rolling (optional)

Instructions

  1. Combine the chocolate, vanilla and salt over a double boiler, and melt until completely smooth. (This can also be done in the microwave.)
  2. Mash the avocado with a fork until no lumps are visible and then stir it into the melted chocolate mixture until smooth.
  3. Place in the fridge to set for 20 minutes.
  4. Once slightly firm, roll the chocolate into 12 balls and place them on a pan lined with parchment paper. (Don’t roll them in your hands for long or they will begin to melt.)
  5. Place the 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder and instant espresso powder in bowl and roll each truffle into the cocoa to coat.
  6. Serve at room temperature, but need to be refrigerated to be stored.
