Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Dessert Hummus

Hummus for dessert? It’s as easy as adding peanut butter, cocoa powder, and honey. The only question left is what will you dip into it?

The last day of #Choctoberfest is here but if you follow my blog you know that Saturdays are also #PBchocSat to celebrate buckeye-inspired (rather peanut butter and chocolate) recipes all season long. So for my final recipe I made a dark chocolate peanut butter dessert hummus!

I know that sounds nuts, but the only thing that makes hummus savory in the first place is what you add to the pureed chickpeas anyway, so why not add something sweet instead?

I’ve actually made a peanut butter hummus before but I was a bit timid if making it a full blown dessert at the time. Here we are 7 years later and I am confident in saying this hummus was delicious! Don’t be afraid of adding that honey and chocolate, go for it! Then dip everything into it. And then get more chocolate by checking out the list at the end of this post.

Today my alma mater Ohio State meets my father’s alma mater Purdue. In recent years this has not been much of a competition but Purdue is not the worst team in the conference for once and has already beaten Nebraska and Illinois by a lot.

Granted Nebraska has yet to win a game and Illinois isn’t much better, but either way they have a little steam in their boilermaker engines this year and cannot be dismissed. Plus it’s a night game at Purdue so there’s that factor to consider as well.

This is not to say that I am generally concerned, but I don’t expect Purdue to be a cupcake either. Crazier things have happened (::cough::App State beating Michigan::cough::).
