Really Good Chocolate Avocado Fondue (Really!)

Chocolate Avocado Fondue

1Tablespoon butter (or coconut oil)
1/2 cup avocado puree (I used 1 avocado)
1/4 cup carrot puree (I used 2 small carrots)
1 cup powdered sugar (I used 3/4 cup)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
   OR 1/2 cup quality dark chocolate pieces
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Melt butter in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat. Add purees. Whisk in powdered sugar. Add chocolate and vanilla and whisk until smooth. Serve warm.

For my recent Chocolate and Wellness Nights, I tried this recipe from Deceptively Delicious (Jessica Seinfeld). I had one avocado on hand, and this seemed a simple way to use it up. Plus, I could stretch my chocolate, and healthify a very delicious snack.

This was very yummy! We could have eaten the entire container in one sitting, happily dipping our strawberries, bananas, and pretzels.
