At first I was skeptical of 'dessert' hummus. Then I tried some. I was hooked. It is awesome on apples, strawberries, pretzels and lots of other things.

As-is, it was okay. Once I added a teadpoon of espresso powder, it was *amazing.* If you don't have espresso powder, coffee powder could work, or just brew strong coffee and use that in place of water. Can't wait to eat this with cookies, fruit, and pretzels! Read More

I use 2Tbsp maple syrup or honey in place of the sugar. I also used Dutch chocolate as I have never found dark cocoa powder. Read More

'Didn't blend the chickpeas smooth but should have; maybe chunky sunflower butter for a li'l texture. I'll also add espresso powder as another reviewer suggested. A little goes a long way - meaning serves more than ya may think. 'Served with pretzels. SuzyQ are ya reading this? 'Not the same as a baked brownie but a girl needs some chocolate! Read More

perfect dessert or appetizer dip! I used almond butter instead of peanut butter and used a combination of maple syrup (2 T) and coconut sugar (4T) with the result being just a little less sweet than original recipe. Served with whole wheat water crackers and thin ginger cookies along with a side of berry salad. Nothing left to take home! Read More
