It’s no secret that I love the combination of chocolate and hazelnuts. But add avocado and slap it on a cake…oh boy, that’s heaven.
Yield Enough frosting for a 2 layer cake or 16 cupcakes
1 cup of dry-roasted hazelnuts
4 soft, ripe avocados
1/3 cup of maple syrup or honey
2/3 cup of cocoa powder
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
A pinch of salt
In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the dry-roasted hazelnuts until the texture of nut butter, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Add in the avocados, maple syrup or honey, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. Process to completely combine, about 2 minutes, scraping the bowl down with a spatula halfway through.
Frost on cake, cupcakes, or eat with a spoon!
