Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and DEFGHIJK Theme Week, and H is for hummus. What?

I've featured black bean brownies before. So I shouldn't have been surprised to have found* Brownie Batter Hummus, from Delighted By Dessert Hummus in stores.

Created by Makenzie Marzluff, this garbanzo based spread also comes in least four (gluten free, vegan, Non-GMO) flavors. Current flavors listed on their website: Snickerdoodle, Orange Dreamsicle, Vanilla Bean, and today's Brownie Batter Hummus.

Sweetened with a bit of turbinado sugar and made creamier with coconut milk, this dessert hummus looks a bit like traditional, savory hummus, but it's all dessert. Anything you might dip into chocolate fondue would probably work as a pairing with this spread. I spread mine on a rice cake and ate it with fruit.

And fear not, there is no garlic and onion, so it's not like your mole sauce fell into your brownie batter.

*Thank you to Ramona Beville who first alerted me to the fact that chocolate hummus existed last year.
