These dark chocolate truffles have a hidden, healthy ingredient: avocado! They’re so rich and chocolatey, no one would ever guess they’re secretly healthy!



  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil (or vegetable oil)
  • 1/2 large avocado (about 1/3 cup)
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder


  1. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips and the coconut oil.
  2. Microwave for 1 minute at a time at 1/2 power, stirring occasionally until melted.
  3. Scoop the avocado out of the peel and into a food processor or blender.
  4. Blend until smooth.
  5. Add in the melted chocolate and sea salt and continue to blend until combined.
  6. Put it in the fridge for 2 hours or until firm.
  7. Once it’s hardened a bit, roll into 1 inch balls.
  8. Roll the balls into cocoa powder until coated.
  9. Store in the fridge until ready to serve!
