“Unfold the love” goes literal (and deliciously snackable!) with this Chocolate Hummus. Sound odd? Stick with me right here. It’s thick and creamy, evenly candy, and made for dipping with fruit, pretzels, graham crackers, or my most popular consumption methodology: from the bowl with a spoon.
My first chocolate hummus overview was at a good friend’s home. She’d purchased a container from Dealer Joe’s (apparently it has a little bit of a cult following), and I took a tiny chew out of pure curiosity.
My verdict was a progressive one. First it tasted totally different, however not in a foul manner. Then it was fairly satisfying. Then I began piling it onto my plate with what would in all probability be considered dangerous manners, however this was a chocolate hummus second, and I used to be in it. Had I been at residence, I might have simply began consuming it out of the container.
Chocolate hummus is product of cocoa powder, tahini (a sesame seed paste that tastes creamy, wealthy, and nutty), some form of sweetener (I used maple syrup), and garbanzo beans.
If the thought of chickpeas in a dessert-ish recipe weirds you out, I get it. Beans? In a candy recipe? Reply: YES. In case you are suspicious, please try the evaluations on this big healthy peanut butter cookie skillet. It accommodates chickpeas additionally, however their style is totally hidden.
