This is a fridge recipe, so no baking required and it is as simple to make as it is delicious. I’ve used not one but two Divine Truffle Bars, one to create a silky smooth avocado ganache and the other bar to have topped with roasted hazelnuts nuts. Decadent - I think so. It can be chilled and eaten straight from the freezer. Makes about: 1 medium sized slab Prepare: 20min Chill: 30min Kitchen Kit: 20cmx30cm pan Parchment Paper; hand blender with chopper

Recipe

Preparation

1) Preheat the oven to 170 degrees centigrade. Line two 20cm x 30cm flat pans with baking paper.

2) Chop the avocado, dates and chocolate and set in separate bowls.

3) Divide the chocolate into 120 and 80g.

4) Arrange the hazelnuts on a single layer and toast for 10 minutes.

5) When roasted wrap in a kitchen towel and give an energetic rub to remove skin. 

6) Chop nuts to a small to medium consistency and set aside. 

 

Base

1) Place the dates, cocoa powder, almond butter and a pinch of salt in the processor and blend until it forms a ball. Press the mixture into the pan and place in the fridge to chill.

2) Melt the chocolate for 2mins on a low heat of 360 watts. Pause every 40 seconds and stir.

3) Place the avocado and syrup in the processor and blend until smooth. Pour in the melted chocolate, a third at a time, blending each time.  Add this avocado layer to the date and chocolate base.

4) Melt the second Hazelnut Truffle Bar and pour over the ganache.

5) Decorate with the chopped roasted hazelnuts nuts. Refrigerate to set, or place in the freezer to enjoy chilled.
