Chocolate Hummus

Serves 4 5 minute prep time

Hummus, that tastes like chocolate? I know it sounds a little out of the ordinary, but I promise your guests will love this chocolate hummus. Transform this appetizer favorite into a delicious dessert dip—it’s much less messy than fondue. Want to start your day with chocolate? Use it in place of a popular chocolate hazelnut spread to top pancakes, waffles, or crepes.
