Although avocados seem like a strange ingredient for fudge, they give a great creamy texture to a decadent treat. I often give it as a gift for the holidays and no one can ever believe it's made with avocados!

  • Pour in the Irish cream and stir. Add the cocoa powder and stir until completely incorporated. Stir in the confectioners' sugar 1 cup at a time, making sure the sugar is completely incorporated and the mixture is smooth before adding the next cup.

  • Melt the semi-sweet chocolate and white chocolate in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave). Do not overheat or chocolate will scorch. Pour the melted chocolate into the sauce pan and mix thoroughly. Remove from the heat.

  • Line a 9X11-inch pan with wax paper or foil sprayed with cooking spray. Pour the fudge mixture into the prepared pan. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

The important thing with this recipe is to make sure your avocados are very ripe and to make sure you have medium avocados. I've made it before with very large avocados and it came out gooey. (We actually used that batch to melt pieces of it into milk for the most amazing creamy hot cocoa!) And if your avocados are too tiny it will be harder as one reviewer found. If all your grocery store has is very small avocados I might use 2 1/2 or 3. PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU SEE GREEN IN YOUR FUDGE AT ALL THEN YOU HAVE NOT MADE THIS RECIPE CORRECTLY!!! The avocado should be FULLY incorporated and the fudge should be completely smooth with no lumps. Read More

I made this recipe for our Saint Fatness Day party this weekend and it came out great! I made sure most people tried it before asking them to guess the secret ingredient. People were guessing raisins dates nuts etc. and then someone finally said "avocado?" and I couldn't help but grin. The only difficult part was blending the avocados because one wasn't ripe enough. It is critical to use ripe avocados for this! Mixing in the cocoa was a bit challenging but surprisingly became easier as the confectioner's sugar was added. The fudge became very dark and thick in the end and I used an 8x8 pan with wax paper instead of a 9x11. I refrigerated the fudge overnight and then ran the bottom of the glass pan under hot water and used a spatula to get it! The Irish cream (I used Bailey's) gives it a great flavor! Read More

Wow I am amazed that this works! I halved the recipe as a trial run but I will definately make a whole batch next year. The slightly Irish Cream flavor is very unique but my favorite part is that it uses avocado instead of marshmallow cream AND you don't need a candy thermometer. I also like that it uses cocoa powder instead of a ton of chocolate chips. I can tell you grew up outside of the US and have learned to adapt to available ingredients! Thanks a lot! Read More

This was well received at our St. Patrick's Day pot luck. It was a little bit more gooey than I would have expected from a fudge - more like a very thick frosting. Still it held its shape for the most part and tasted good. You can't taste the avocado at all - avocado has such a mild flavor that it really enhances other flavors well. There's so much cocoa and chocolate in this that the green color was completely eliminated. Read More

I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe. I cut the recipe in half and didn't use the last cup of powdered sugar and it was perfectly sweet. It was quite a workout trying to stir in the sugar and cocoa powder. The mixture never got smooth and I was concerned it wouldn't turn out but after a few hours in the refrigerator it turned into a creamy fudge. You can't taste the avocado at all but it does create a festive swirly green layer on top.festive swirly green layer on top. Read More
