These Avocado Truffles are the perfect healthier dessert for any occasion! No one will know that these truffles have a secret ingredient in them – avocados. Traditional truffles have heavy cream in them – this recipe uses avocado in replacement of the dairy fat with a plant-based fat to still give a rich and decadent taste but in a healthier way.

Tips for Making Avocado Truffles

  • Use high quality dark chocolate for these truffles.
  • You can use different toppings to dip your truffles in – such as finely chopped nuts, sprinkles, or mini chocolate chips.
  • To keep truffles fresh and firm, refrigerate in a sealed container.
