1 ripe avocado
1/2 C cocoa or carob
2/3 C dates and/or honey (I usually will use a combination of the two)
1/2-1 t vanilla
1/4 t salt or less
1/4 t cinnamon (optional)
Combine all ingredients in food processor or blender and processor until smooth, adding the water if needed. I usually have to scrape the sides of food processor a few times to get it all mixed in. I also taste it a few times and make sure it doesn't need any more dates or honey added.
Double the water if you want more of a silky chocolate sauce. Use less water for a thicker consistency like mousse.
Dehydrate small drops of sauce for homemade tootsie rolls.
Freeze in popsicle molds for homemade fudge bars.
