Just when I thought I’ve seen it all, I taste chocolate hummus. Yep, the traditionally savory spread has gotten a sweet twist by replacing the tahini (sesame seed paste) and olive oil with melted chocolate. If this sounds absolutely absurd, well, I don’t disagree.

But when you take a bite, your taste buds will swear it’s brownie batter. The protein and fiber-filled garbanzo beans make for a thick and creamy spread that’s great for dipping or eating by the spoonful. It’s a healthier alternative for some guilt-free indulging.
