I was inspired by a recipe I saw on Instagram and decided to have a go with my own concoction of ingredients! The avocado was my idea, and we have an olive oil store here in Tucson with the best flavors of olive oil! The blood orange flavor in it is so great. If you have non flavored olive oil, I would zest and orange and add fresh squeezed orange juice in (about a tablespoon). You cannot beat chocolate-orange flavor combination.
