Serves: 12

|
1 9-inch chocolate cookie crust 12 oz. milk chocolate bar, finely chopped 1 cup heavy cream 1/4 cup sugar 1 tsp. instant coffee (optional) 3 ripe, fresh California Avocados, seeded, peeled, and quartered 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder 2 cups whipped cream 1/2 cup pecans 1/4 cup salted caramel sauce for drizzling
  1. Place the chopped chocolate in a large bowl. In a saucepan over medium heat, warm the cream whisking in the sugar and coffee if you’re using it. When cream is hot, but not boiling, and the sugar is dissolved, pour the mixture over the chopped chocolate and stir until the chocolate is melted.
  2. Add the chocolate mixture to the bowl of a food processor along with the avocado and cocoa powder. Process until the mixture is super smooth and it begins to look just a bit lighter.
  3. Spread the filling over the prepared crust and chill for at least 20 minutes and up to 24 hours. When ready to serve, top with whipped cream, pecans and salted caramel drizzle. The pie will keep up to five days when refrigerated.

Serving Suggestion: Serve with a side of fresh strawberries.

Beverage Pairing: Irish Coffee.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
