Healthy Avocado Chocolate truffles : how to ripen avocado ?
I love dark chocolate truffles for Christmas. I think there is no Christmas without chocolate truffles. If you also love christmas truffles I gather a collection of 12 easy no bake christmas truffles recipe. But, here I am sharing with you my healthier chocolate truffle recipe. Those easy avocado chocolate truffles are super easy to make – all you need is a super ripe avocado. I agree if you live in US or Europe, finding ripe avocado in winter is a challenge. So this is my trick. To ripen avocado quickly, place them in a fruit basket near bananas or wrap them into a piece of foil. Wit for 3-4 days at max and they should turn into smooth ripe avocado. That is how it looks like for me. Well, I am living in New Zealand, the country where I ate the most delicious avocado.
The batter will be moist and sticky. You will ahve to store it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to firm up. Then, I recommend to slightly rub your hands with coconut oil before rolling the truffles into your hands. It makes the process easier and it won’t stick to your fingers.
I place all my truffles on a simple chopping board covered with parchment paper and decorate most of them with a dust of unsweetened cocoa powder.
To create beautiful Christmas colors on those avocado chocolate truffles I played with natural powder. The red one are made of beetroot powder, the green is matcha powder and the white one are rolled into desiccated coconut. I also used a tiny bit of sugar free icing on some of them. It is basically erythritol icing powder.
I made this recipe two times. First time I used strong 90% dark chocolate to make this recipe. The darker the better! But the kids prefer a lighter chocolate around 80%. Look how fudgy they are! and they taste amazing, no avocado after taste at all!
There is no more to say about those truffles. I made them and ate 3 of them while shooting. I am not even sure why I am saying that. You know I already eat a lot of my food while shooting, right ? I really have to stop eating because tonight I have got some family for dinner and it is our dessert. This recipe makes 25 truffles. You can easily store them in the fridge in an airtight container up to 4 days. But believe me, you will eat them before.
