Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Fat per serving: 4.75

Calories per serving: 100

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the condensed milk and stevia extract.
  2. Add in the protein powder, cocoa powder, and salt.  Whisk together until completely combined (mixture should thicken like frosting).  Cover and refrigerate the mixture for 5+ hours (mixture should firm up).
  3. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Use a cookie scoop (for the food service peeps, I used the #40 1½ tbs purple disher) to portion the fudge onto the cookie sheet.  Refrigerate uncovered for 30 minutes to an hour.
  5. Roll the scoops between your palms to form balls, then place back in the fridge for another 30 minutes to an hour.  Serve and enjoy!

Notes:

  1. The recipe above is my revised recipe. I originally posted a Chocolate Fudge Truffle recipe back in 2014 but felt like it could use some work on the flavor.  Just in case you wanted to see the previous recipe and/or the changes I made, I’m providing the old recipe here:
  • 1 Large Avocado, ripe
  • 170g (¾ cup) Plain, Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Paste (I used homemade!)
  • 1 tsp Stevia Extract
  • 105g (¾ cup, packed) Chocolate Brown Rice Protein Powder
  • 10g (2 tbs) Unsweetened Dark Cocoa Powder
  • ⅛ tsp Salt

Try the Ferrero Rochers variation of this recipe!

Feel free to coat the truffles in cocoa powder, shredded coconut, mini chocolate chips, natural rainbow sprinkles, or whatever you want!

I liked how the chocolate chips added a nice crunch to contrast the smooth and creamy fudge.  But then again, the sprinkles were good too…  because, well, what is life without sprinkles?  While these truffles were good and I’m pretty sure I inhaled them in 2 days, I felt they could have been better.  That’s why I revamped the recipe!

  1. These look incredible! I’m not a huge fan of yogurt–does it taste like yogurt or do the other ingredients mask it?

  2. Is there something I can substitute for the vanilla paste? Would plain vanilla extract work?

  3. Is there any way to make these dairy free? Something else In place of that yogurt? My youngest has dairy allergy – but I really would love to try this
    Recipe!!!

    • Amanda-
      I’m coming out with a dairy-free version in a couple weeks 🙂
      It’s going to publish on Monday, October 6th… (for my BDay, shhh!) 😉
      I’m sorry for the wait, but it’ll be so worth it once you see the post!

  4. What a delicious and surprisingly healthy chocolate recipe! I am a serious chocolate lover so you can consider that I will be recreating these truffles.. thanks for the recipe.

  5. is protein powder a must or can I sub it? I don’t have protein powder.

    Thanks!

  6. Is there any substitute for the protein powder or can it be eliminated? I don’t have any, and it’s a little expensive to buy just for this. 🙂 thanks

  7. I think some crushed nuts would also make a delicious coating…maybe add some pb2 and then crushed peanuts…whoa, I just blew my own mind.

  9. Humm, looks taste. I would like to prepare apiece of this one.

  10. hello! I’m wondering how long you think these might keep in the freezer? it seems like I’d be able to freeze them and eat them as ice cream substitutes but I’m not sure if those ingredients keep well in the freezer. thank you! I can’t wait to try these either way 🙂

  11. I have a Whey/Caesin Protein mix because this is what I drink – am I able to use this protein for t his recipe? I don’t really want to invest in another protein at this point without having tried it is other reciepes. Thanks

  12. I just made these and WOW. Most of the batter didnt even make it to the truffle stage…… 😉 Thank you for your genius recipes!

  13. Hi,

    I don’t know why but mine turned out goopy (like a REALLY thick pudding). What I mean is that it’s overly sticky and can be rounded into a ball, but it then it can’t be picked up as it semi droops out of my hand. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Thanks!

  14. This looks like a great healthy alternative to my favorite holiday treat! What sugar would be best to substitude for the stevia? Could a liquid sweetner  like honey be substituted or would that mess up the consistancy? 

    • Hi Katie!
      This fudge recipe is pretty difficult to change around, so I’m not sure about the stevia replacements… I would try replacing the 1 tsp of stevia extract with 3/4 cup of pure maple syrup + 10g (2 tbs) unsweetened dark cocoa powder + ~70g (1/2 cup, packed) chocolate brown rice protein powder. I haven’t tried this but I hope it works out for you!! 😀

  15. I just made these and could not stop eating the “batter”.  I just read through the above comments and now see why mine stayed rather soft.  I used whey protein.  So I just ordered the brown rice protein powder and will try again.  I dipped them in hemp seeds and will eat them anyway.  I just had a great idea though, the soft “batter” would be GREAT for icing on the carbquik brownies!  I used vanilla Stevia and just a little vanilla paste to keep the sugar lower.  Super delicious!  Thank you so much for the recipe!  Off to make brownies now!

  16. I have an Intolerance to rice. Can another protein powder be used here? I have a soy based protein powder….Any suggestions?

  19. I don’t understand how it can only have 3 grams of fat when 150 gram avocado has 22 grams of fat. Please explain…

  20. Hey! These look beyond amazing.
    Question: any way I can use almond milk instead of the condensed milk? That might be too thin…maybe plain ol’ canned coconut milk would work?

  21. Any chance regular ol’ coconut milk (or almond milk) would work instead of the condensed milk? I realize it’s less thick…but maybe by adding only 3/4 cup or 1 cup of liquid?

    LOVE how these look and cannot wait to make them.
    Thanks!
