I succumed to a major weakness of mine this week- Cadbury mini eggs. They are seriously crack. Thankfully, I don’t know exactly what crack is like and I imagine this is somewhat of an exaggeration. But still. This year I found a dark chocolate version which I think is just as good, if not better (gasp), as the original. It also helped me justify eating nearly half a bag in one sitting. Woops.
Last year P and I gave up dessert for Lent. It was a struggle but I managed. I considered doing it again this year but that lasted one day. One flipping day. It’s a lot harder without having P’s support. So then I thought, if I’m going to be eating sweets I may as well make them somewhat healthy and with minimal added sugars.
I found this recipe for dark chocolate avocado truffles. I was a little skeptical but since I had all the ingredients on hand I thought I’d go for it. Oh me gee I’m glad I did! They were amazing! So creamy and chocolately and you would never know there was avocados in them. They are so rich that I could almost eat just one. Almost. And I didn’t even roll them in the cocoa powder. How’s that for self control?? In fact, next time I think I may add a tiny bit more avocado (like maybe a half a one) OR do a tiny bit less dark chocolate (like 3/4 dark chocolate and 1/4 unsweetened chocolate or just using a a bar with a higher cocoa percentage). They definitely didn’t look like as cute as hers did. Since I was just making them for my lonesome self I didn’t care that they looked like something you would find in a field full of cows. I just couldn’t get mine to roll in little balls even though I kept them in the fridge for longer than recommended. And I think if I had dusted them with cocoa powder or coconut flakes they would have looked a little better. Oh well. I took a picture but you probably wouldn’t make them based on my that 🙂
I will still always have a weakness for mini eggs though.
Hope you had a great weekend!!!
