CINNAMON-HAZELNUT AVOCADO MOUSSE
I typically do not have the biggest sweet tooth. I personally prefer salty but this cinnamon, hazelnut avocado mousse is pretty insane. Don’t let the avocado filling scare you…I promise you wouldn’t know there was avocado in there if I didn’t tell you. The roasted hazelnuts and raspberry combo on top is perfection. I know this is my recipe but I promise it’s a good one to bring as your holiday contribution and it takes less than 15 minutes to prepare.
