Chocolate dip

When asked to bring dessert to a friends place you want something that’s easy to make, delicious and more often than not, chocolate.

This dip is a great alternative to a raw cake, brownies and/or cake pops as it requires less time to make and still tastes amazing.

All ready for processing

You’re probably looking at the above photo and thinking, “Why are there chickpeas if it’s meant to be sweet?” Well, maybe you weren’t thinking exactly that, but I’m sure you are now!

The chickpeas create the creamy texture of this dip. The cacao and dates disguise the flavour of the chickpeas with a sweet chocolate flavour. So, no need to worry!

Smooth consistency

This dip tastes amazing with fruit, spread on toast, with oats in the morning or eaten by the spoonful!

Ready for dipping

It will keep in the fridge for up to four days in a sealed container.
