Ever since making our savoury avocado truffles, we’ve been thinking about creating a dessert version of this much loved dish. Here is a quick and simple way to prepare an elegant and challenging dessert.

The “truffles” are filled with a light chocolate mousse and coated with cacao nibs and ground pistachios. The silky flavours of avocado and chocolate are complemented by the textural, crunchy coat.

Late summer and early fall in the produce isle means grapes, all kinds of them. We’ve been thoroughly enjoying grapes for about two months now, making Muscadine grape juice almost daily and obsessing over a heavenly fig, grape, and cinnamon shake (let us know if you’d like the recipe).

Concord grapes are a special treat. They contain seeds, which nowadays seems rare and exciting. Most grapes sold in the States are seedless – a true shame considering the myriad health benefits of grape seeds. The Concord grape sorbet, besides completing the dish with beautiful jewel tones, adds a nice amount of sweetness to the mild tastes of the truffle and bitter notes of the cacao nibs. The sorbet tastes a bit like grape jelly and serves as an exciting companion that pleases both eyes and palate.

Instructions For The Eggs:
1. Assembly, you will need 2 large ripe, but still firm avocados.
2. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit.
3. With a spoon, scoop some flesh from the center of both halves, leaving enough flesh on the skin for the avocado to be able to hold its shape when the skin is removed.
4. Place the flesh into a high speed blender with the rest of the chocolate mousse ingredients and blend until smooth.
5. Fill the avocado halves with the chocolate mousse, and put them back together.
6. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours, this way the mousse will set and the avocado halves will become glued together. If you don’t have time to wait, you can bypass the refrigeration, and slowly peel away the skin from the avocado, it will just take a little more care.
7. Place the ground coating on a flat plate and drench the peeled and stuffed avocado in the coating, carefully turning it to cover its whole surface. 8. Your avocado truffles are now ready to be served, or to stay in a refrigerator for up to one day.

    I find it disappointing that her (see above) name should even be mentioned on this site, along with her fur promoting, fois-gras loving creations. I come to this website to hear about the future and to be reminded of her backwards thinking, however well she presents it, is just wrong.
