When I mentioned at work I was going to be making chocolate hummus I got a few bemused reactions, however don’t be scared off, chocolate hummus is surprisingly good.  Some how the mixture of chickpeas and raw cacao gives the hummus a slightly salty sweet, but rich, chocolatey flavour.  It is the perfect healthier snack, with a slightly sinful flavour.  I usually serve mine with sliced fruit and pretzels.

So why not give chocolate hummus a chance, go on you just might like it!

If too thick, add a little of the chickpea water and adjust the sweetness to your liking
