Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chunks or chips ripe avocados
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons honey (or maple syrup, molasses etc.)
  • 2 tablespoons molasses (or maple syrup, honey, etc.)
  • 2 tablespoons molasses (or maple syrup, honey, etc.)
  • 1 tablespoons Hazelnut Kahlua (or other liqueur or maple syrup, honey, etc.)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • mint leaves, chopped hazelnuts, and/or berries for garnish (optional)

Instructions

In a small saucepan, add a little water, only so it rises a few inches along the side, and bring to a boil. Dice the ripe avocados (2)

Place a small stovetop-safe bowl inside the pot and turn the heat down to low, just enough to keep the water boiling. Add the dark chocolate chunks (1/4 cup) and whisk intermittently, erasing any clumps and ensuring it doesn’t burn.

While the chocolate is melting, add diced avocado, unsweetened cocoa powder (1/4 cup), honey (2 Tbsp), molasses (2 Tbsp), hazelnut Kahlua (1 Tbsp), pink Himalayan salt (1/4 tsp) and almond milk (2 Tbsp) to a food processor.

Followed by the melted chocolate. Process until silky smooth

Pour into two or four bowls, cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.

Take out of the refrigerator and garnish with mint leaf (to taste), chopped hazelnuts (to taste) and/or berries (to taste).

Enjoy! This is honestly the cure for PMS, a bad breakup or just a really horrific chocolate craving.
