Chocolate truffles…decadence at its finest. But everyone knows that after one too many, your stomach pays the price. Guess what: these truffles are made with 5 ingredients and no added sugar. The best natural fat, everyone… avocado! So I didn’t think it was possible, but I found a new way to love avocados with this one. Who KNEW. In just over 30 minutes you can get one (or five) of these in your mouth. And savor them because they’re not bad for you!
