Double-dipping might be allowed. In fact, it might be an irresistible truth when you whip up this buttery-soft chocolate hummus. Not sold on the combination of chickpeas and chocolate? The richness of cocoa, chocolate whey protein and chocolate extract strongly overpower the nutty beans, so all you get is dollop upon dollop of the good stuff. Let no bite of banana go bare!
