Hidden Avocado Chocolate Truffles

avatarPaleoHacks Team

Silky, rich, and chock-full of healthy fats, these avocado truffles fuse the creaminess of avocado with the bittersweet flavors of cacao, dark chocolate, and carob powder. Paleo powdered coconut sugar (coconut sugar blended into a fine texture) lends a soft, malleable texture and a delicate sweetness to these healthier treats.

If you’re concerned about the flavor of avocado coming on too strong, don’t fret. When emulsified with lime juice, lime zest, and vanilla extract, these avocado truffles turn out creamy, refreshing, and lightly sweet. Plus, the whole thing gets dipped in chocolate and rolled in powdered cacao nibs and carob powder, providing yet another rich layer of flavor.

To start, form the avocado candy by paddling together the avocado, lime juice, lime zest, vanilla extract, and Paleo powdered sugar in a stand mixer. Next, form an emulsion by slowly drizzling in the avocado oil. Then pour the emulsion into truffle molds, pop in a cacao nib center, and allow it to set.

Next, create the outer chocolate-cacao-carob layer. The key to beautiful, silky, rich truffles is properly tempering the chocolate. The recipe below walks you through the essential steps, including melting the chocolate in increments, seeding in the rest of the chocolate, and following the correct heating pattern.

To assemble the outer layer, pulse together some cacao nibs and carob powder in a food processor. Then, dip the avocado candies in the tempered chocolate and roll them in the cacao-carob powder. Once set, you’ll have decadent, rich, and creamy truffles!
