Homemade Chocolate Hummus

Chocolate hummus is so decadent – like a rich chocolate mousse! You’d never know it was hummus unless someone told you! Plus, it’s so easy to make from scratch.

This recipe uses just a few key ingredients:

  • a can of chickpeas (these are also called garbanzo beans)
  • a chocolate nut butter (like Nutella)
  • sweetener (I use honey and brown sugar, but maple syrup or molasses would also work if you like those flavors.)

The whole thing comes together super easily in a food processor and lasts for a couple of weeks in the refrigerator.


There are so many ways to use this dessert hummus! Consider the following:

  • use it as a dip with pita, pretzels, or chips
  • spread it on toast or crumpets or shmear it on a bagel
  • serve it with fresh berries or other fruit
  • use it as a filling between two crackers
  • spread it on top of a cupcake, muffin, or banana bread as a healthy frosting

  • 14 ounces canned chickpeas 1 can, drained
  • 1/2 cup chocolate nut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar


  • Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until it's as smooth as you can get it.
  • Store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks until ready to eat.


I used Justin's Chocolate Almond Butter as my chocolate nut butter. You could also use chocolate hazelnut spread like Nutella or a chocolate peanut butter. The higher quality your chocolate nut butter, the better the end result will be. If you use Nutella or another product with lots of added sugar, your end result will be sweeter than mine and, depending on your personal taste preferences, you may need to cut back on the honey.
