You know Ferrero Rocher? Those golden balls with the hazelnut in the center? (For smarty pants: rocher is French for rock).
I always wondered who cared for the crispy outside anyway… the cream is what matters! Very good message: You can have all the cream for yourself. It’s vegan, raw and healthy. It doesn’t taste vegan, raw or healthy (don’t ask me what vegan, raw or healthy actually tastes like… but you know, sometimes you serve something made from whole wheat and people tell you it tastes healthy. Most of the time, it’s not a compliment).
It’s easy and quick, too.
Do I have to say more?
Thinking about it… I guess this is cup cream. Hey, there are cup cakes, too. Old story. Now it’s time for cup cream!
Chocolate Rocher Mousse
- 1 large, ripe avocado
- 2-3 tbsp cocoa powder
- 2-3 tsp cane sugar
- 1-2 tsp agave syrup
- 3 tbsp chopped hazelnuts
- dash of salt
Mash the avocado (I just used a fork, to special tools here!) and mix in the cocoa, cane sugar, agave syrup, hazelnuts and salt. Serve in a cup (otherwise it’s no cup cream, you know…). Decorate with chopped hazelnuts.
Smile! It’s chocolate!
Did you ever think of using this cream as a spread? I put some of it on a slice of bread – similar to nutella! Yummy!
I can tell you, it’s always a mess when legos are stealing food…
yum! i can see why your little friend wants some. ;)
I have made a similar recipe on my blog & but I also love your tasty recipe! It is beautifully presented too!

I remember! And there were so many recipes with avocado cream this year. However… adding nuts makes it even more delicious!
Roasted hazelnuts are awesome, too!
