Do the words avocado+chocolate make you cringe or get you interested?  If the words don’t do much for you, perhaps the pictures will.

The creaminess of avocado combined with the rich taste of cocoa is simply divine.

With the lack of highly refined flours and sugars and the added health benefits of the amazing avocado, this unusual treat will make your tummy happy and bring a smile to your face!
