Chocolate Hummus?

Yes, chocolate hummus. It sounds weird, kind of disgusting, but it turned out to be quite yummy. Like pudding.

It started with a quest to find a savory chocolate recipe to use at the chocolate SNTK. When I finally found it, I couldn't wait for the test kitchen. I had to do it right away, by myself.

There is nothing difficult about this. You stick all the ingredients in a blender, mush them together (it's a technical term) and you get a thick, slightly lumpy concoction. Eat it with cookies!

Chocolate Hummus
adapted from Spark People

1 can chickpeas, drained
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp vanilla
1 tbsp water
Puree in blender. Serve with cookies or as a crazy dipping sauce for celery.

Makes 4 servings. Or one giant serving if you're really hungry and decide to eat it all in one sitting. (Not that I did this. I swear!)
