I don’t know about you, but sometimes I see a recipe and am so intrigued by the ingredients that I have to make it and find out for myself if it’s any good. This Chocolate Hummus recipe definitely falls into that category.
I’ve had this healthy Chocolate Dip in my to-make file for some time now. With strawberries so plentiful right now, I finally took the time to make the dip.
You’ll be super surprised at what the secret healthy ingredient is! Are you ready for it?
It’s garbanzo beans! Yes, this is hummus, but with chocolate!
What a great little snack this turned out to be! Thick, rich, and chocolatey. Chocolate Hummus is perfect for dipping graham crackers, strawberries, or bananas.
I certainly didn’t feel guilty feeding this to my kids.
What? You said you wanted strawberries and chocolate for a snack?
Why sure, have all you want! The kids asked for this at every snack and meal until it was gone. (I never told them what was in it.)
- Using a high-powered blender really makes this dip super creamy. (like a Vitamix)
- We definitely preferred the chocolate hummus chilled over room temperature. (It’s chilled in the photo above, when room temperature, it is darker and not as thick.)

This looks so amazing! 😀 I must try it a.s.a.p.! Thanks for the great recipe!
what brand of blender did you use for the chocolate dip? you stated in the recipe that a high-powered blender was needed.
Hi, A high powered blender is definitely NOT needed for this recipe. Any blender will work. I personally have a vitamix blender and it is my opinion that a high powered blender makes this dip EXTRA super smooth and creamy (almost like whipped butter.)
Sounds interesting. However, it does seem like there's a lot of sugar in this, between the actual sugar and the sweetened condensed milk. Any idea how much there is per serving?
These are my two favorite sites for finding out nutritional info: http://caloriecount.about.com/ and myfitnesspal.com. If you look up the nutritional values, be sure to come back and let everyone know. According to the weight watchers website, this recipe is 2 points plus per serving. (When I diet, i loosely follow their plan…) 1 serving is 2 tablespoons of the dip.
Made this last night and although it didn't look at all like yours (darker and not as thick), it was yummy! I sprinkled in some cinnamon- love that combo of chocolate and cinnamon. And subbed the sugar with agave nectar, justna little squeeze.
I am glad you liked it! My dip only got that thick after being in the fridge for a couple of hours. It did start out darker and thinner as well.
Looks amazing! I would never have thought of using chickpeas with chocolate 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing at Mom On Timeout!

Yum. Looks tasty. Do you know the calorie content?
I dont know the calories, but two tablespoons of the dip is 2 pts plus. I considered making it with splenda, but since it was for the kids I just used regular sugar. Taking out the real sugar reduces the pp by .5.
This looks so yummy! How many calories per serving? I love your blog and am thrilled to be your newest follower!
