What to Eat with Chocolate Hummus

Before we get into what to eat with chocolate hummus, let’s address the elephant in the room: Chocolate hummus is pretty freakin’ weird stuff. Hummus is usually a savory dip. If it’s flavored, it’s flavored with garlic or dill or roasted red peppers. Who decided there should be a dessert version (apparently, a few people could be responsible)? And why? Well, we may never get to the bottom of this odd trend, but if you’re reading this article we can safely assume you’re on board with it. Hey, let your freak flag fly, chocolate hummus lover. Grab a container of the best chocolate hummus (we only found one brand we could recommend) and let’s talk about some of the best things to dip into this strange sweet spread.

Honey Maid Cinnamon Graham Crackers

Our first chocolate hummus pairing combines chocolate and cinnamon to create a filling snack with Mexican hot chocolate vibes. Grab a sleeve of these Honey Maid Cinnamon Graham Crackers, which are coated in a dusting of cinnamon. They have a pleasant crispy crunch, but since they’re sturdy enough to stand up to s’mores, we figure they’re sturdy enough to scoop up big ol’ dollops of chocolate hummus.

Imagine pairing healthy icing with a bowl of animal crackers. Let’s go over the facts: We already know chocolate and animal crackers work together. Plus, Kroger Wild Side Animal Cookies have a sweet, citrusy, vanilla-tinged flavor profile that’s going to work damn well with a chocolate dip.
