Preparation

  1. Prepare the chocolate sauce by combining all ingredients in a bowl with a spoon and put aside.
  2. Cut the avocado in half, from head to bottom, and peel each side carefully.
  3. Put both sides of the avocado back together and slice it horizontally. You should have about 7 slices.
  4. Place a teaspoon of nut butter on a plate or on some baking paper and place the base layer of avocado on top, so it sticks and sits upright.
  5. Spread a layer of chocolate on top, then put another slice of avocado on top, and keep going until you reach the center.
  6. Fill the center with chocolate and almond butter.
  7. Finish by topping the avocado with additional chocolate, or by drizzling it down the sides, for presentation.
  8. Place the avocado in the refrigerator until it sets completely, and serve with a dusting of cacao or maca powder.
