The mere thought of combining chickpeas and chocolate put my boyfriend in quite a state, but two hours later, he was joyfully dipping banana slices in my hummus, almost drooling with pleasure.

This recipe is an ideal dip for fruits and a perfect spread for morning toast. You could also serve it with dessert pita bread: brush the pita with olive oil, sprinkle it with cinnamon and sugar, and grill it in the oven.

Earlier today, I made myself a faux chocolate croissant by filling the inside of a croissant with this chocolate hummus recipe. It was divine!
