  2. Casey Lorraine

    Glad you enjoyed adapting my recipe! 🙂 These look wonderful

  3. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    Hannah you hit the jackpot with this recipe for reals!! This looks soo tasty~ I remember making o.g. haystacks in foods class in 7th grade 😛 I would love to meet Heather someday too!

  4. Terra

    Okay, I love love this recipe! Just gorgeous:-) I am a big fan of avocado, and love mixing with a delicious candy treat:-) Take care, Terra

    Wow, I would never have thought of using avocado in dessert, but then again if I got three avocados for $4 I would just eat them with a spoon or on toast as I love them. Can’t wait for the mousse recipe, that just sounds crazy but awesome.

  6. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    This is an ingredient combination I would never have thought of…and thus I am most impressed. It may almost convert me to avocado eating (I’m not usually a big fan)!

  7. Sarah

    I can’t wait to make this. Very impressive! With it’s creaminess and texture avocado makes a perfect base for a dessert. Not that it’s ever made it to dessert for me. It’s too busy being entree and main course:)

    This looks heavenly!!!! Can’t wait to try them out!!!!!!! 😀

    haystacks sound so much nicer than blobs but I love coconut in these sort of snacks – bought some coconut rough on my holiday and loved it

  11. Kate at FudgyGoodness

    Yummo! Love avocado in anything but never thought to use it this way… Thanks for sharing, and can’t wait for the mousse recipe 😉

    Oh, what a great idea for bite-sized frozen snacks! Yummy.

  13. Emma

    You can always try those frozen avocado halves…

  14. Victoria (District Chocoholic)

    Nothing involving chocolate and avocado is silly. Those are two of my favorite foods.

  15. Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table

    These look awesome… but I’m still stuck on the fact that you don’t really like avocado! *insert look of shock and awe* LOL!

  16. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Haystacks are such a nostalgic dessert, I love that you’ve “healthyfied” them!

  17. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    LOL OK I did the exact same thing-I bought the avocadoes. One is sitting in my fridge drawer. I’m scared of it.

  18. Tori (@eat-tori)

    The last time I bought too many we made an avocado milkshake thing that we had in Morocco. It was….interesting. Not convinced it’s something I need to repeat. This is just the solution I need….

  19. Hannah

    They look like extra-chocolatey coconut macaroons- Yum!

  20. Ricki

    I love the sound of these! I recently discovered “haystacks” but haven’t had unbaked ones yet. This is a great combination of ingredients that I bet works perfectly! And since I’ve also often found myself in the “too many avocados ripe all at once” camp, I’ll tuck this away for next time that happens. 😉 Thanks for submitting the recipe to WW this week!

  21. Errign

    I’m still pretty sure I don’t like carob, but these look tasty. As far as avocado goes, I would recommend trying Angela at Oh She Glow’s avocado pasta because it’s heavenly.

  22. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    Very fancy idea to use avocado for these! 😀 (I’m currently determined to get into the I-like-avocado mode.)

  23. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    I love using avocado in baked goods (or in this case, not-baked :)) I don’t really care for avocados either, but they’re a pretty good price here in the summer, so I always feel obligated to get them!

  24. Fatbooo

    Avocado and chocolate… oh my! Sounds rich, healthy and Yummmy. : )

    Lol re: blobs. love the word. haa!

  25. Heather Eats Almond Butter

    Yes, yes, nooch wedding stories for another day…but it WILL happen, and I must agree, haystacks is much classier than blobs. I like it, and I’ve totally been there with ‘all recently purchased avocados ripening at once’. Not sure what I did before I discovered that magicalness that is avocado + cocoa powder. 🙂

    Love you sweet Hannah.

  26. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    I am so endlessly impressed with your rapport with…the whole internet, seemingly! Is there anyone in the blogosphere that DOESN’T consider you a great friend? 🙂 You have a big, long U.S. trip to plan, missy!

  27. Y

    Wow, chocolate avocado blobs… actually sounds kinda delicious 😉 I don’t cook or bake with avocado much, mainly because I’m in the love-avocado camp and don’t mind if I happen have 3 ripen all at once. Means more for my breakfast 🙂

  28. Camille

    …don’t like avocados that much?!? Gasp! Also, what is high-raw? Enlighten this ignorant pastry chef.

    Hi Hannah
    This is my first time on your blog and I think I struck lucky – avocados and carob/chocolate – yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
    If you want to force your avos to ripen quickly or get one to ripen ahead of the others if bulk buying, stick an avo plus a banana in a zip lock freezer bag, squish the air out and leave the 2 together in the bag until soft. The gas that the ripening banana gives off speeds up the ripening of the avo. I do this all the time when the only avos I can find in the supermarkets are bullet hard..
    Thanks for the recipe. I have a fridge with 3 very soft avos in it so know what I will be making today..

    So, tonight I wanted to make something yummy that did not require a trip to the shop. I had an avocado I wanted to use up and remembered seeing on your blog. I have to say it is the weirdest thing I have ever tasted! Having said that, it still has my brain ticking over trying to find a box in my brain to put the taste and texture in and it still has me smiling and even laughing – because it is so alien to me. Therefore, it is weird, new and fun, not feelings that food often makes me feel 🙂 My favourite use of avocado is instead of like butter on toast or bread and then with a smear of vegemite – it’s delicious. Avocado is great on sangers and toast instead of butter or other spread.

    This was yummy and dreadfully fool proof. My partner thinks it’s like a chocolate crackle but nothing compares to the taste of Copha though 😉 Maybe you can re-invent fairy bread next!
