These are delicious!!! You would NEVER guess they were made with an avocado! They're very fudgey and chocolatey and decadent!

Be careful, they are also very ADDICTING!

  3. Line a sheet pan or cookie sheet with wax paper. Using your hands roll the chocolate mixture into little 3/4 inch balls and arrange on cookie sheet. (If the mixture gets too soft put it into the refrigerator or freezer to harden a little)
