How to make Easy Homemade Chocolate Hummus

This recipe is very simple to make and doesn’t require too many ingredients. You will need:

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.

Let’s dip…

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.
  • Pretzels
  • Graham Crackers
  • Pound Cake
