Chocolate Hummus – So Decadent That You Can Use It In Place of Chocolate Frosting

Chocolate hummus is so decadent – like a rich chocolate mousse – that unless you tell your tasters it’s hummus, they’ll never know.  Case in point: While I slathered chocolate hummus all over pita (probably too much of it because it’s “healthy”), I also used it to frost chocolate cupcakes.  Friends and family unknowingly tasted the chocolate hummus frosted cupcakes (they were only told that it was a chocolate cupcake), and not a single soul gave me a sidelong “what are you feeding me” glance.  I asked for feedback and I got comments like, “What do you want me to tell you?  It’s just a really good chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting.”  Without knowing it, they gave me the exact feedback that I wanted to hear.

Chocolate Hummus Recipe

This chocolate hummus recipe is my own creation.  However, I used the Snickerdoodle Dessert Hummus by Blissful Baking as a starting point.  That hummus recipe should also be added to your short list of party spreads to try.

Chocolate hummus is so decadent - like a rich chocolate mousse - that unless you tell your tasters it's hummus, they'll never know.
Course Snack

Keyword chocolate hummus, chocoluate hummus recipe, dessert hummus
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 12 servings
Calories 93kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 can 14 oz chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained
  • 1/2 cup chocolate nut butter I used Justin's Chocolate Almond 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.
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

Instructions

  • 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 until ready to eat.

Notes

This is a great party spread!
