Healthy Avocado Chocolate truffles: how to ripen avocados?
I love dark chocolate truffles. I think there is no celebration without chocolate truffles. Here I am sharing with you my healthier chocolate truffle recipe. These easy avocado chocolate truffles are super easy to make – all you need is a super ripe avocado.
I know that finding ripe avocados in winter is a challenge if you live in the US or Europe. So here is my trick.
To ripen an avocado quickly, place them in a fruit basket near bananas or wrap them into a piece of foil. Within 3-4 days, they should turn into smooth, ripe avocados. That’s how it looks like for me. Well, I am living in New Zealand, the country where I found the most delicious avocados.
The batter will be moist and sticky. You will have to store it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to firm up. Then, I recommend slightly rubbing 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 dust of unsweetened cocoa powder.

To create beautiful Christmas colors on these avocado chocolate truffles, I played with natural powders. The red ones are made with beetroot powder, the green ones with matcha powder, and the white ones 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 a strong 90% dark chocolate. The darker, the better! But the kids prefer lighter chocolate, around 80%. Look how fudgy they are! and they taste amazing, no avocado aftertaste at all!
This recipe makes 25 truffles. You can easily store them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 4 days. But believe me, you will eat them before.
