Melt in your mouth perfection! I added a 1/4c chopped toasted pecans. Also I chilled for longer than 20 mins to make them easier to handle--but check often, because when the mixture starts hardening, it goes fast. No taste of avocado whatsoever.

Rich and velvety. A keeper.
Fantastic! I did add a little stevia to it and rolled them in a combination of cocoa powder and almond flour. I will be making a double batch next time
delicious little treat!
Very simple and really tasty
avocado wasn't ripped but it turned out tasty anyway

The recipe worked ok but i think I did it wrong because i mixed the avocado while the chocolate was still melting and caused the oil in the avocado to be excessive... I had to pat some of it off but once I made the balls i patted it with the cocoa it was less.. although I think next time I will not because it gave it a bitter taste while the mic was perfect in taste.,..

They turned out really well and it was surprising how the avocado flavor was hardly noticeable. Definitely make.

Wow - so rich and good! I used Enjoy Life dark chocolate chips (69% cacao). After I mixed in the avocado, I tasted the mixture and wanted a little sweetness so I added a teaspoon of honey. I chilled the mixture for about 45 minutes before forming the balls. I checked on it earlier, but it wasn't that firm yet. I skipped the cocoa powder. The balls weren't as firm as I wanted so I stuck them in the freezer for 5 minutes and then they were perfect.

It turned out okay. It took 20 minutes longer to firm and the unsweetened cocoa powder made it very bitter.

So good! I added about 1/4 cup of some Sugar In The Raw to sweeten up the dark chocolate some. it turned out perfect!! I also rolled them in oats at the end.
