Chocolate Hummus Your New Healthier Chocolate Spread

  • Author: Vicky & Ruth
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1/2 cups 1x


Our Chocolate Hummus recipe brings together the rich taste of chocolate with the creaminess of ground chickpeas for a sweet and healthy dessert-spread that’s easy to prepare without any cooking time.


  • 1 - 15oz can chickpeas, rinsed and thoroughly dried
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened non dairy milk ( see note)


  1. Empty the can of chickpeas into a colander.  Rinse with water, and with the water running, rub the chickpeas with your fingers, so the skins start to loosen
  2. Drain the chickpeas really well. Remove and discard as many skins as possible and dry them using paper towels ( this process is optional, but removing the skins will produce a smoother, less gritty hummus)
  3. Melt the chocolate chips in a glass bowl using your microwave, in 20 second increments, stirring well each time
  4. Place the chickpeas in the food processor and pulse until they resemble coarse cornmeal. Add the melted chocolate, vanilla, salt, tahini and milk. Process until smooth and creamy. Add more almond milk, to achieve the desired consistency ( See note below ). Store in the refrigerator until ready to use


  1. The chocolate hummus will thicken once refrigerated. Add more almond milk in order to get it creamy again.  You can carefully mix it by hand or put it back in the food processor.
