Ingredients for 4-Ingredient White Chocolate Avocado Truffles

  • 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/4 cup mashed ripe avocado
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

Directions for 4-Ingredient White Chocolate Avocado Truffles

  1. Add the confectioners’ sugar and avocado to the bowl of a food processor. Set aside.
  2. Place a shallow bowl over a pot containing several inches of water, making sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water. Add the white chocolate to the bowl and turn the heat to medium low. Slowly melt the white chocolate, keeping a close eye on it. As soon as it starts melting, stir it continuously with a rubber spatula until it’s smooth, 4 to 6 minutes. Don’t rush through this step; white chocolate burns and breaks easily.
  3. Transfer the white chocolate to the bowl of the food processor. Process the ingredients, stopping once to scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl, until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  4. Scrape the avocado mixture into a wide shallow bowl and freeze until quite firm to the touch, 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, line a plate or small baking sheet with parchment paper. Sprinkle the cocoa powder on another plate.
  6. When the avocado mixture is firm, pull off small pieces of it, roll each piece between your palms into a ball that’s about 3/4 inch wide (you don’t want to make them too large, as they’re very rich) and transfer the balls to the parchment paper-lined plate. The mixture will be a tiny bit sticky but shouldn’t be unrollable. If it is unmanageably sticky, it needs to be frozen longer. Roll the truffles in the cocoa powder to thoroughly coat them all over. Store in an airtight container with a sheet of parchment paper between each layer for up to 1 week.

Categories in this Recipe

  • Avocado – The avocado (Persea americana), a tree likely originating from south-central Mexico, is classified as a member of the flowering plant family Lauraceae. The fruit of the plant, also called an avocado (or avocado pear or alligator pear), is botanically a large berry containing a single large seed. Avocado trees are partially self-pollinating, and are often propagated through grafting to maintain predictable fruit quality and quantity.Avocados are cultivated in tropical and Mediterranean climates of many countries, with Mexico as the leading producer of avocados in 2019, supplying 32% of the world total.The fruit of domestic varieties has a buttery flesh when ripe. Depending on the variety, avocados have green, brown, purplish, or black skin when ripe, and may be pear-shaped, egg-shaped, or spherical. Commercially, the fruits are picked while immature, and ripened after harvesting.
  • White Chocolate – White chocolate is a chocolate confection, pale ivory in color, made from cocoa butter, sugar, milk solids and sometimes vanilla. White chocolate does not contain cocoa solids, which are found in other types of chocolate, such as milk chocolate and dark chocolate. It is solid at room temperature 25 °C (77 °F) because the melting point of cocoa butter, the only cocoa bean component of white chocolate, is 35 °C (95 °F).
  • Dessert – Dessert (/dɪˈzɜːrt/) is a course that concludes a meal. The course consists of sweet foods, such as confections, and possibly a beverage such as dessert wine and liqueur. In some parts of the world, such as much of Central Africa and West Africa, and most parts of China, there is no tradition of a dessert course to conclude a meal.The term dessert can apply to many confections, such as biscuits, cakes, cookies, custards, gelatins, ice creams, pastries, pies, puddings, macaroons, sweet soups, tarts and fruit salad. Fruit is also commonly found in dessert courses because of its naturally occurring sweetness. Some cultures sweeten foods that are more commonly savory to create desserts.
  • Gluten Free – A gluten-free diet (GFD) is a nutritional plan that strictly excludes gluten, which is a mixture of proteins found in wheat (and all of its species and hybrids, such as spelt, kamut, and triticale), as well as barley, rye, and oats. The inclusion of oats in a gluten-free diet remains controversial, and may depend on the oat cultivar and the frequent cross-contamination with other gluten-containing cereals.Gluten may cause both gastrointestinal and systemic symptoms for those with gluten-related disorders, including coeliac disease (CD), non-coeliac gluten sensitivity (NCGS), gluten ataxia, dermatitis herpetiformis (DH), and wheat allergy. In these people, the gluten-free diet is demonstrated as an effective treatment, but several studies show that about 79% of the people with coeliac disease have an incomplete recovery of the small bowel, despite a strict gluten-free diet. This is mainly caused by inadvertent ingestion of gluten. People with a poor understanding of a gluten-free diet often believe that they are strictly following the diet, but are making regular errors.In addition, a gluten-free diet may, in at least some cases, improve gastrointestinal or systemic symptoms in diseases like irritable bowel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, or HIV enteropathy, among others. There is no good evidence that gluten-free diets are an alternative medical treatment for people with autism.Gluten proteins have low nutritional and biological value and the grains that contain gluten are not essential in the human diet. However, an unbalanced selection of food and an incorrect choice of gluten-free replacement products may lead to nutritional deficiencies. Replacing flour from wheat or other gluten-containing cereals with gluten-free flours in commercial products may lead to a lower intake of important nutrients, such as iron and B vitamins. Some gluten-free commercial replacement products are not enriched or fortified as their gluten-containing counterparts, and often have greater lipid/carbohydrate content. Children especially often over-consume these products, such as snacks and biscuits. Nutritional complications can be prevented by a correct dietary education.A gluten-free diet may be based on gluten-free foods, such as meat, fish, eggs, milk and dairy products, legumes, nuts, fruits, vegetables, potatoes, rice, and corn. Gluten-free processed foods may be used. Pseudocereals (quinoa, amaranth, and buckwheat) and some minor cereals are alternative choices.
