Cajun Shrimp Tacos with homemade Hard Taco Shell’s
You know what happens when you run out of sugar?
You mash an avocado and mix it with chocolate.
Yeah, I put avocado in my cake. And you know what, it is good. And kind of, like healthy!
So on Sunday I had these big plans to make these fancy triple chocolate cake balls. Full of sugar, chocolate, butter and more chocolate. But then I went to grab the sugar only to find a very empty container. Not a grain of sugar was left. Now normally this is not a problem. I always have plenty of backups. Well I guess not always, cause when I went to get those they were nowhere to be found.
Backups = Gone.
Panic mode hit. No sugar!
Now there was no way I was going to the store on Superbowl Sunday. I am pretty crazy, but not that crazy!
So I kept the cake ball idea, but tossed the white sugar and butter and swapped in some avocado and whole wheat flour. I had no sugar but like 15 avocados. When Hass avocado’s are on sale for 77 cents (people 77 cents) you buy a lot. A lot!
I of course kept the chocolate. For the antioxidants! Never skimp on the chocolate.
Because we are baking the avocado I promise you can not taste it. All it does is moistness to the cake without adding any unhealthy fat! Winner, winner! As for the sugar, I used a little brown sugar to sweeten things just a little.
Then I proceeded to cover these moist fudgy cake balls in a dark chocolate coating. For more antioxidants.

hi tieghan! these look aaammmmaaaazzziiinngg!!! but hey just noticed a typo in the heading… its triple not tripple… dont wanta sound nagging but… ha that sort of thing really bugs me 😉
I’m intrigued. I’ve never used avocados in a dessert recipe, but now I think I might give it a try. These cake balls look so delicious!
Avocados and chocolate — never would have thought of it but looks amazing. Pinned for a try next time I see avocados on sale! Thanks so much for sharing on Busy Monday!
Thanks for pinning!
Pretty sure you just blew my mind. Chocolate and Avocado, wow! If it means I can eat triple chocolate cake balls and have them be healthy I am there! I am pinning this to put it to the test.
Ok – pass the avocados then please! 🙂 This looks like a fab idea – I will have to keep my eyes open for cheap avo’s. Thanks!
Likes divine. One quick question, is an 8″ Pyrex, square or round or does it not really matter for the recipe?
Really is does not matter. I used square but a round would also work. Enjoy!
These look delicious – not healthy 🙂 Thanks for sharing the recipe. I’d be thrilled if you’d link up at this week’s Off the Hook!
yummm, I love antioxidants 😉 I’ve only tried avocado and chocolate one time, to make healthy chocolate pudding. It did not go well, but this makes me want to try again!
I have made hundreds of pops, but never ones these healthy. I bet I would eat these and never know that they were made with avocado. So interesting….
These sound fantastic! Thank you for sharing at last week’s week’s All My Bloggy Friends 🙂
