Ingredients

  • 5 ounces white chocolate
  • ½ avocado
  • 2 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla essence
  • cup shelled pistachios

Instructions

  • Use a double broiler or a saucepan over low heat to melt the chocolate slowly. Make sure to stir regularly and take off the heat just before the chocolate is completely melted so it doesn't burn
  • Add the avocado and vanilla to a food processor and process until smooth
  • Drizzle in the melted chocolate and the maple syrup and process until smooth
  • The mixture will be runny so place it into the freezer until workable - i.e. you can roll it into a ball without it losing its shape
  • While the chocolate is in the freezer make your pistachio dust. Place the pistachios in a blender and blend until it resembles a bright green dust 
  • Roll a heaped teaspoon of the chocolate mixutre into a ball and roll in the pistachio dust
  • Place in a dish lined with parchment paper and refrigerate until ready to serve
