These 3-Ingredient Chocolate Truffles Are A Perfect Last-Minute V-Day Treat
For a delicious no-bake recipe, try these three-ingredient chocolate truffles. They're so easy to prepare (just 10 minutes!), making them a delightful last-minute project—perfect for an impromptu Valentine's Day treat!
But they aren't just a beautiful sweet treat to indulge in; they also contain amino acids, antioxidants, and healthy fats. You see, the star ingredient is mindbodygreen's chocolate beauty & gut collagen+, a hydrolyzed collagen powder that supports strong hair and nails.*
Studies have also shown that collagen supplements can support skin elasticity1 and overall hydration2, meaning fewer fine lines with firmer, more supple skin.* This premium collagen blend also contains vitamin C and vitamin E, meaning there's extra antioxidant support for your whole body.* Additionally it contains turmeric, biotin, SGS, L-glutamine, and hyaluronic acid for additional skin and allover benefits.*
Oh, we'd be remiss not to mention the flavor of the powder: It's made with organic cocoa and organic monk fruit extract, making the taste rich and sweet but never saccharine.
This so-simple recipe yields a rich, decadent dessert with a beauty-enhancing twist—what more could you want?*
3-Ingredient Chocolate Truffles
Makes 10 to 12 truffles
- ½ cup dark chocolate (80% is ideal, but use whatever you have in the home), melted
- ½ avocado
- 1 scoop mbg chocolate beauty & gut collagen+
- Optional: ⅓ cup cocoa (for dusting)
- Optional toppings: crushed peppermint bark, sea salt, coconut shreds, cacao nibs, walnut pieces
- Melt the dark chocolate over a double boiler or in the microwave (about 30 seconds or so); set aside.
- In your food processor, process the avocado (without the skin) until smooth.
- Add the melted chocolate to the food processor, add mbg's chocolate beauty & gut collagen+, and continue to process for 30 to 45 seconds or until homogenous.
- Remove the chocolate-avocado mixture from the food processor and place in the fridge to form a harder mixture (about 30 seconds).
- Once 30 seconds have passed, remove the mixture from the fridge, and using about ½ to ¾ teaspoon each, form balls from the avocado-chocolate mixture.
