Chocolate Hummus

Serves 4 5 minute prep time

By Morgan Shupe on November 29, 2016, categorized in Dessert, Sides & Appies

Chocolate Hummus

Hummus, that tastes like chocolate? I know it sounds a little out of the ordinary, but I promise your guests will love it. 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.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooked chickpeas (about half of a 453 g/16 oz container)
  • 3 1/2 to 4 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 to 2 Tbsp peanut butter or tahini
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 to 5 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (or cacao powder)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 to 4 Tbsp neutral vegetable oil (like canola or grapeseed)

Preparation

  • In a food processor, combine all ingredients. Blend until smooth.

  • Store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to five days.
