How to make Easy Homemade Chocolate Hummus
This recipe is very simple to make and doesn’t require too many ingredients. You will need:
- Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- Chocolate chips, optional
More important than your ingredients is a high powered food processor. The better the food processor or blender the smoother you can get your hummus.
One tip for getting a smoother hummus is to remove the skins from the chickpeas. I personally do not remove them because I don’t mind but the extra few minutes will make a difference.
Once your hummus is made chill it in the refrigerator before serving. Chocolate Hummus is definitely best when cold.
Chocolate hummus can be used in so many ways. One of the easiest is as a dip. Here are some suggestions of what to dip in your hummus:
- Fruit- bananas, apples, oranges, cherries
- Berries- strawberries, raspberries, blackberries
- Dried fruit- apricots, banana chips, etc.
- Graham Crackers
- Pound Cake

- 15 oz chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup plus 1 tbsp sugar
- 1/3 cup water

- Drain and rinse chickpeas. Skins do not need to removed however if you prefer a smoother hummus removing the skins will make a big difference.
- Add chickpeas, cocoa powder, and sugar to food processor.
- Blend for 30 seconds and then scrape the sides. Blend again for 30 seconds.
- Add water a little at a time until your desired consistency is achieved. Depending on how much water was on your chickpeas you may not need the full 1/3 cup.

To make your hummus more smooth remove the skins from the chickpeas before blending.
