We are going away this weekend and I just discovered that we won't have wifi so am posting this in advance, but guess I won't be able to catch up all of your lovely blogs until I get back. Anyway this is the one of the desserts I am taking. I chose this one because I could make it last weekend and keep it in the freezer which is perfect and because I had to blog in advance I had to have small taste test of course.
I did find the bottom of it it be a bit crumbling as shown in the picture but aside from that this recipe is great. I used a mixture of walnuts and macadamia nuts because I ran out. When I was making the icing I thought you could taste the avocado but once its together I don't think you would ever guess. It's quite rich, so you only need small squares!
