#GuacSquad12 BONUS Recipe: Chocolate Guacamole #sponsor


I've just wrapped up my multi-day, multi-blogger event - #GuacSquad12 - that was sponsored by CasabellaGourmet Garden Herbs & Spices, and Melissa's Produce.  In case you missed it, you can still get the scoop. And, if you love guacamole, you should definitely explore all of the creative takes on guac: here.

I made a Holy Mole Guac on the first day of the event and shared a Chunky Greek Guacamole on the last day of the event. While I was so excited about all of the versions - we had Roasted Peach Guacamole from Jane's Adventures in Dinner; Deviled Egg Guac from A Day in the Life on the Farm; and a Grilled Guacamole from Cafe Terra; and so many more - I realized we were missing a dessert guacamole.

No one had taken the plunge to create a guacamole as a final course. Hmmm...


So, in typical Camilla-style, I embraced the adventure and decided to create a chocolate guacamole as a bonus recipe for #GuacSquad12. Mixing avocado and chocolate isn't too much of a stretch, really; I've made chocolate-avocado pudding several times before.


Ingredients

  • 3 ripe avocados 
  • 4 T ginger syrup
  • 2 T organic granulated sugar
  • 1/3 C unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 C semi-sweet chocolate chunks or chips
  • plain crackers for serving - or even cookies



Procedure
Peel and dice the avocados. Place the avocado, ginger syrup, sugar, and cocoa powder in a large mixing bowl. Mash the avocados, incorporating the other ingredients, until your desired texture.


Stir in the chocolate chunks and spoon into a serving bowl.


I served these with plain-ish rice crackers. My crew thought it was too savory (no such thing in my mind!) and thought I should have served it with cookies. Maybe next time...
