Chocolate Hummus

Chocolate Hummus

I am positively swooning over this smooth, rich, perfectly sweet, and easy chocolate hummus. You’re probably used to savory hummus flavors like my Ranch Hummus or Buffalo Wing Hummus, but if you’ve never tried a sweet variety, get ready to fall in love! This simple chocolate hummus uses only 6 ingredients and comes together in less than 5 minutes (including measuring out the ingredients) – what’s easier than that? I can’t get over how decadent and chocolatey this tastes, and it’s perfect as a dessert, a snack or as party food (make this to be a potluck hero). Plus, a generous ¼ cup (which just means a serving is a little more than ¼ cup) is only 127 calories or 4 WW Points!

I love serving this with fruits like strawberries, pineapple spears, or banana slices, but it would also be great with something salty like pretzels. The Greek yogurt gives this chocolate hummus a smooth and creamy consistency that’s perfect for dipping!

  1. Looks so good! How long would this last in the fridge?

  2. Made and loved for snacks last week. Subbed some maple syrup as I ran out of honey. Delicious!

  3. Oh, wow! I cannot wait to try this! Thank you for posting!

  4. Of you make this with Splenda would it have 0 points?

  5. I LOVE this recipe!!! My husband, 8, 5, and 2-year-olds love it too! I decided to experiment tonight, and I added about 1 teaspoon of hazelnut extract. It’s not quite Nutella, but it’s still good! I’m also thinking maybe next time some peppermint extract for mint-chocolate??? I feel like the possibilities are endless!

  6. Would it work without the honey or is there another way to get the points down?

    • It wouldn’t be sweet at all if you omit the honey so I would not recommend that. You could probably replace the honey with an artificial sweetener if you prefer

    • Hi – I’ve been making a version of this for months now – and have gotten the WW points down by reducing the sweetener to 1 tablespoon (I use maple syrup, as it’s got the most bang for it’s buck “flavor-wise” to me. Dark Agave would work well too. And I add a 1/2 teaspoon ground stevia (I buy the whole dried leaves, and grind to a powder – but – you could use an other powdered version of stevia, or a few drops of the liquid – I just wanted to use something with no additives at all). – I also add a half of a banana. – That makes it plenty sweet enough for me – and gets the points down to 2 for a 1/4 cup. — I also don’t use the yogurt (my initial recipe just didn’t call for it) I use 2 tablespoons of tahini (yes – it’s points, but it’s also nutrition, and adds a rich flavor and texture) – I use black beans rather than chickpeas (they come out smoother) – add 1 tsp. of vanilla – and usually also add ground cinnamon and New Mexican red chile pepper. (so it tastes a lot like Mexican hot chocolate). – It’s really good, and everyone I’ve served it to loves it.

  7. First of all let me say this is the best recipe blog around! I love your easy to follow delicious recipes. That being said…. I made this and did not like it. I am a sweetaholic so this was not sweet enough for me. I tried adding Stevia and it just didn’t work. I do love hummus but this is not for satisfying a sweet tooth.

  8. My grandchildren’s pediatrician has advised against using honey for children under 5.
    (Of course my little guy wants to eat everything older sister does)I will try with maple syrup and add a little sugar if necessary.
    I’ll check back in after the party.

  9. I make mine without the yogurt, and I sub agave for the honey. I also use the dark chocolate cocoa. it’s amazing!
