Do you first smas or blend avocado smooth prior to putting it into the chocolate. Also it says Orange peel not zest. So do we chop the peel up in small pieces or zest it?
Thanks looks yummy

Sorry for any confusion. 1) I did smash the avocado in with the orange zest, orange juice, and honey before adding the mixture into the melted chocolate. and 2) it should say orange zest… not peel. I zested it with a fine grater and then measured it into a tablespoon.

Kelly, you mentioned you have substituted coconut oil before. Can you give us the amount you would have used? My husband is allergic to avocados. Thanks!

Can’t wait to try this! One question….Is it 6 ounces of chocolate chips? It seems that 3 cups is more than 6 ounces. Thank you for this yummy recipe!!
