How It's Made

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Organic Chocolate Chunks, 70% Cacao (1 kg)
  • 1/2 cup avocado(s)
  • 2 tablespoons Organic Maple Syrup (540 ml)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Organic Raw Ground Vanilla Beans (0.25 kg)
  • a pinch of Unrefined Algarve Sea Salt (1 kg)
  • 1 tablespoon rolled oats (not instant oats)
  • 1/3 cup Organic Goji Berries (1 kg)
  • 1 tablespoon Organic Coconut Palm Sugar (1 kg)

Directions

  1. Melt the chocolate over medium heat in a bain marie.
  2. Using a food processor, purée the avocado and add the maple syrup and vanilla.
  3. Add the avocado purée to the chocolate with the help of a spatula and add a pinch of salt. Let cool and then put mixture in the freezer for 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a food processor mix the goji berries, sugar, and rolled oats for a few seconds to obtain a grainy powder in which to coat the truffles. Make sure not to over mix in order to keep some goji berry chunks.
  5. Melt in a bain marie 1/2 cup of chocolate and put aside.
  6. Using a teaspoon, form balls with the chocolate mixture from the freezer about 1 inch in diameter. Dip the balls in the melted chocolate with the use of a fork and then coat with the goji berry, sugar and rolled oats powder.
  7. Place the truffles on a parchment paper covered baking sheet and let them set in the fridge for about an hour.

These truffles make a great gift or party favour and should be kept in the fridge.
