    How big should be the ripe avocado?

    Holly I don't think the powder would work. Jean it's not an exact science with this recipe. Do try this. No one can guess the "secret" ingredient and great for entertaining. I'll be making lots at Christmas.

    HOW MANY ARE ONE SERVING PER PERSON?

    This recipe makes 20 servings. If you get 20 truffles, that means 1 is a serving.
