You are going to flip over our Chocolate Peanut Butter Hummus! So will your guests, kids and grand kids.  Chocolate hummus on its own is so indulgent and peanut butter hummus has the creamy nutty flavor we all love - so you can only imagine how great putting them both together is.

Here’s the deal.  You could describe this hummus by calling it a  chocolate hummus, peanut butter hummus or dessert hummus. You could also call it divine, indulgent, delectable, easy and tasty! Bottom line is, if you like a semi-sweet taste of a good chocolate and the rich cream flavor of peanut butter, this flavor of hummus is definitely for you. Especially if Reese’s ranks among your favorite treats.

              Hummus Making Tip:  Making this hummus recipe calls for spreadable smoothness.  This begins with removing as many of the skins as you can.  For Step #3, we place the beans in a colander (saving the cooking water of course) and begin to rinse the beans under cool water.  We rinse our beans using our water spray unit holding it close to the beans and gently use a wooden spoon to turn the beans.  The bean temperature change encourages the majority of the skins to loosen and fall off.  Then we place the skins on a sheet pan, spread them out, pick out the loose skins and dispose of them, and continue with Step #4 to the end of the recipe.
