This is a wonderful easy recipe for those who are lactose intolerant but want to eat fudge! I make this for gifts and no one ever knows what's in it! So sweet and smooth.
In a medium sized saucepan, melt the margarine over low heat. When margarine is melted, puree with avocado in food processor or blender until perfectly smooth until there are no chunks left!
Return mixture to saucepan over very low heat and aff the rest of the ingredients, except the walnuts, adding the powdered sugar a portion at a time.
Once all the sugar has been added, the mixture should be thick. Add walnuts if using, and pour into a loaf pan. Refridgerate until firm. It takes awhile for it to firm up so waiting overnight is best :)

BE CAREFUL! Many people are ALLERGIC TO AVOCADOS, along with almonds or peanuts. And avocados are not a common ingredient, so someone who does not suspect the fudge may consume freely, sometimes a very small amount may cause a severe reaction. It sure is a great recipe if there are no issues, though. May I suggest simply inquiring, or informing. The trade off of "no one knowing," to the recipients' ( or their families, or a guest in their home to whom they serve the delicious convection) well-being is up to you, but I suspect you'd rather say, "I made this with avocado! ", or the recipient say when offering, "Lisa made this with avocados! ",
than, " I'm so sorry. I didn't know." I have always found it helpful to list the ingredients of my homemade gifts , and affix it to the bottom of the box. Happy, Healthy Holidays!
I love avocado's! I am willing to try this though what can I sub for margarine. I refuse to use margarine for anything except maybe as a shoe polish:) Would real butter work here or maybe something even healthier?
thanks for a good sounding recipe
Editor's Note: Butter is usually interchangeable with margarine in recipes.
Looks like a great recipe! I'd really like to try it. However, where I live avacoados come in many shapes and sizes. Do you know what the actual measurement of avacado flesh (like 1 cup..2 cups?) is needed for this recipe?
Avocado is supposed to have lots of vitamin E in it - good for the skin!
Sounds sooo good...can't wait to try it!
