Chocolate hommus – super easy to make, perfect as a fruit dip, icing on the cake or toast spread for a healthy, delicious, chocolatey snack.
I promise I haven’t totally lost my mind.
Chocolate and hommus can go together.
Think about it.
Have you heard of or had black bean brownies before?
See lentils and chocolate – they work.
Stay with me on this one.
It was out of my comfort zone too.
I didn’t have a can of chickpeas on hand so I soaked my own and then cooked them.
For those who want to take that option – about half a cup of dried chickpeas worked out the same as a tin.
You will need to soak them overnight then drain and rinse, cover with water in a saucepan, bring to the boil, then simmer, covered for about 30 minutes.
Then it’s as simple as throwing everything in a food processor or Thermomix and letting it work its magic smooshing powers.
I did it in the Thermomix which I found a bit annoying because it flicked everything up the sides and I had to scrape it down so many times (anyone have a solution for this?). That’s why I left mine a bit chunky – pure laziness.
Feel free to process yours until it’s silky and smooth.
Another thing that will make it super smooth is peeling the chickpeas.
I however don’t have the patience for peeling chickpeas so I skipped this step too.
Ideas for serving chocolate hommus
- dip fruit in it like I did
- roll in little balls and then roll in crushed nuts
- use as icing on a cake or cupcakes
- use to sandwich two biscuits together
- spread on toast (or French toast – even better)
It’s actually pretty good for you so the first two options make a nice, healthy, delicious, chocolatey snack.
What about you? How would you eat chocolate hommus? Would you try it?
