Rated as 2 out of 5 Stars

"Avocados mate so well with cocoa. They are, after all, natives of the same part of the world. The avocado gives this fudge a delightful creaminess. This recipe was sent by a friend in SoCal."

  1. Blend avocado and melted butter together in a blender until completely smooth; pour into a saucepan and place over low heat.
  2. Stir cocoa powder, melted chocolate chips, Irish cream liqueur, and vanilla extract into the avocado mixture until smooth. Add 3 cups confectioners' sugar in small amounts, stirring each addition completely into the avocado mixture before introducing the next; cook and stir until thick and smooth, 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Grease a baking dish. Pour the fudge batter into the baking dish and smooth with a spatula into an even layer. Sprinkle chopped walnuts atop the fudge and dust with 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar.
  4. Refrigerate fudge until firmly set, at least 1 hour.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Another native of this part of Central and South America is chile pepper, and, yes, these three natives are good together, so add some chile pepper for a fun alternative fudge.
  • Prepare the avocado at the latest-possible moment to avoid the flesh from losing its green color to oxidation.
  • You could also use pistachios or a mixture of pistachios and walnuts, if you'd like.
