Dessert hummus is a thing, and it is absolutely decadent without all the guilt! Serve with pretzels, strawberries, or graham crackers. Also makes a delicious filling for crepes topped with bananas. You can trick anyone into eating chickpeas when they taste this good! For a deeper color and flavor, use Dutch process cocoa powder.

This is a great idea. We eat lots of hummus at our house and try to eat healthy. To begin with I made this as written. I realize that often hummus has to sit awhile in the refrigerator for flavors to maximize and I didn't do that initially. Right after mixing I felt it needed more sweetener and more chocolate. Thus a 3 rating. After adding a few more Tablespoons of sweetener and another heaping Tablespoon of cocoa I would bump it up to a 4. My husband really liked it! So it is a good basic recipe you may want to play with the ingredients. Read More

I made this with a tahini recipe from this site that tastes very nutty, and hence, this tastes very nutty. I am after the flavor I get from store-bought chocolate hummus, and this was not it. It might be because of the tahini, though, so I am going to try again before deciding it is not the recipe for me. Read More
