Miracle Chocolate Sauce from Heaven

It's so fun to have simple recipes which emulate something like thick chocolate sauce but without the need for massive amounts of butter or some other fat. So get to the point, you say. What is in this sauce that makes it so miraculous. Well I'll tell you. Avocados.

We all know, I hope, that avocados are like the butter of the vegetable world. They're rich and creamy. They also don't have a super strong flavour which makes them perfect for this recipe. Here it is:

1/4 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 avocado

Blend everything together and use as you would chocolate spread or a thick chocolate sauce. Atop a cupcake? Why not! In a crepe and covered with fruit? Go nuts! Oh, speaking of nuts, it would probably be like Nutella if you added some nuts which means breakfast ever.
