The flavor of black forest cake shines through in this creamy and velvety dessert hummus. Cocoa powder and cherries lend to the deep rich chocolate color, as dark as the German forest itself.



  • 1/2 cup frozen sour cherries
  • 15 oz Chickpeas (garbanzo beans, bengal gram), mature seeds, canned, drained, rinsed in tap water
  • 3 tbsp granulated (white) sugar
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp Salt, table
  • 4 tbsp 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 1 tsp Mini Chips, Semi-Sweet Chocolate


1 Add cherries to a food processor and pulse until roughly chopped. Remove from food processor and set aside.
2 Drain and rinse chickpeas. Remove skins by gently squeezing and separating skin from bean.
3 Add chickpeas to food processor and add sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt. Blend until smooth.
4 While food processor is on, pour in milk, one tablespoon at a time, until you reach your desired consistency.
5 Pour into a bowl and stir in chopped cherries.
6 Garnish with additional cherries and chocolate chips.
7 Serve with pretzels for dipping.
