Chocolate hummus is a great option for a healthy dessert. You can dip or spread anything you want with it! I would recommend dipping fresh fruit in it such as apples or strawberries, or snacks like pretzels and crackers. This would also be a delicious treat to put on a platter to bring to a party. Enjoy!

  • 1 Can (15 oz) of Chickpeas, drained
