Chocolate Avocado Mousse

4 oz semisweet chocolate
1 tbs canola oil
2 avocados
2 tbs cocoa
2 tbs pure maple syrup
2 tbs honey (if you don’t eat honey, agave nectar or more maple syrup is fine) 2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1/4 cup natural peanut butter

Put the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and stir to coat with the canola oil.  Microwave for 45 seconds.  Stir, then microwave for 30 seconds.  Repeat with decreasing times until the chocolate is melted and smooth.  Mash the avocado in a food processor until smooth or mash roughly with a fork, then whisk to get the lumps out.  Combine the melted chocolate with the smooth avocado.  Add the remaining ingredients except for the peanut butter.  (Measure the syrup and honey with the same spoon you used for the oil so that it slides right out.)  Then add the peanut butter.  Makes four servings.  Small but rich!  Top with sprinkles, fruit, or anything your heart desires and dig in.
