3-Ingredient Dark Chocolate Spread
Are you also fond of the chocolatey goodness that you can find in jars of choco hazelnut spreads, belgian chocolate spreads, and chocolate spreads on markets? Are you also familiar with Nutella hazelnut spreads? I believe most of us love this cocoa spread!
The first thing that you’ll want to do is grab a cup of your choosing and fill it to a third with cocoa powder. Make sure that the powder is at least 60% concentrated dark chocolate mix to ensure that the dark chocolate spread comes out even and can blend property with the chocolate hazelnut that you’ll be adding in later.
If you’re not a fan of hazelnut then you can always substitute it with other products that you’re more into. Once you have the cup filled with the cocoa powder you should get 6oz worth of chocolate baking bar, chunks, or chips.
I personally ended up using Lily’s baking bar that’s sweetened with Stevia to ensure that the overall sugar content stays low, making this dish both nutritious and tasty for families of all diets. Now that you’re done collecting the chocolate, it’s time to grab three ripe avocados with each one coming out at roughly 120g.
Melt your dark chocolate in a microwave for about a minute using a safe bowl. Next up, you’ll want to remove the pits from your avocados then combine all your ingredients in either a high-powered blender or food processor.
Blend the mix until smooth for two to three minutes and voila you have chocolate spread that you can store in an airtight jar for up to two weeks in a fridge.

Ingredients for 30 servings (or about 35oz)
Serving size: 2 tablespoons
- 1/3 cup cacao (or at least 60% dark chocolate) powder (Note: I used black cacao)
- 6oz dark chocolate chunks, chips or baking bar (I used Lily’s Baking bar that is sweetened with Stevia to keep sugars low)
- 3 ripe avocados (each avocado was about 120g)
Melt the dark chocolate in a microwaveable safe bowl for 1 minute in the microwave.
Remove the pits from all the avocados.
Add all of the ingredients to a food processor or high powdered blender. Blend until smooth – should resemble smooth peanut butter or nutella – for about 2 to 3 minutes. Note: you MUST use ripe, soft avocado or the recipe will not work.
Store in an airtight jar in the fridge for no more than 2 weeks, but I recommend just 1 week. If you want to store it after 1 week, store it in the freezer.
