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.

Recipe Ingredients for Chocolate Hummus - So Decadent That You Can Use It In Place of Chocolate Frosting

14 oz Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans, Bengal Gram), Mature Seeds, Canned
8 tbsp Organic Peanut Butter, Creamy
0.25 cup Honey, Strained Or Extracted
6 tsp packed Sugars, Brown

Recipe Directions for Chocolate Hummus - So Decadent That You Can Use It In Place of Chocolate Frosting

  1. 1 can (14 oz) chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained

  2. 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.)

  3. 1/4 cup honey

  4. 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  5. Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until it's as smooth as you can get it.

  6. Store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
