Keto Ferrero Rocher
When you're in the mood for a classic chocolate truffle look no further than these keto Ferrero Rocher. My version is sugar free and actually nutritious because the filling is made with avocado! And just in case you're wondering - no, you cannot taste the avocado at all. You're getting exactly what you've signed up for: chocolatey, creamy goodness by the mouthful!
- 6 oz / 170 g avocado flesh 1 large/ 2 small avos, ¾ cup mashed

Pour the melted chocolate into the avocado mix and blend.

How to melt chocolate without it seizing or curdling:
In a double boiler / bain-marie: Place the bowl with the chocolate over/into a saucepan with just-boiled water. Once the chocolate is half-melted, take off and stir until fully melted.
In the microwave: Microwave on high for 60 seconds and check. If the chocolate is not yet half-melted, zap for another 30 seconds max. Then remove and stir until fully melted.
