Aly and I love to watch "Shark Tank," and in a recent episode, there was a woman who made a deal with Mark Cuban to sell her dessert hummus. The name of the company is "Delighted By"...and the hummus comes in four flavors. There's brownie batter, vanilla bean, chocolate mint and snickerdoodle.
I decided to buy a couple of flavors from our local supermarket. We tried the brownie batter and vanilla bean. The brownie batter was by far our favorite.
I've been eating regular hummus my whole life, so I make my own. I don't normally buy hummus. However, I decided to find a recipe to make HOMEMADE chocolate hummus. "Delighted By" is pretty expensive ($6.99 for 8 oz).
Well, I'm thrilled to say I found a super EASY recipe!! Even my super picky 4-year old LOVES it.
1 (15oz) can of Chick Peas (Garbanzos). Strain and rinse. I prefer GOYA. They are softer and blend better.
1/2 cup dark chocolate unsweetened cocoa powder.
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 TBS Sunflower Oil (you could also use olive oil if you need to)
3 TBS water
Put all the ingredients into a food processor and blend/grind until you get smooth consistency. That's it! So easy. Then, grab a spoon, pretzel, graham cracker or some fruit and dip away!
