After all, he has great taste, and is a chocolate purist who loves 100% cacao chocolate!  His words to me:  "Don't bother!  This is chocolate homicide!"  We like it not!

 

"What you see before you, my friend, is the result of a lifetime of chocolate."

Happy Friday, We wish you a delightful weekend!

Good morning Alexandra. I am a chocolate lover and purist as well. I don't think this would work for me either.

Good to know, although, I'd have likely passed on it anyway. Somehow chickpeas and chocolate together doesn't even sound appetizing.  Good for Ron for trying it, though. Somebody has to be the taste tester.

Happy Friday Ron and Alexandra- there are some things you shouldn't mess with and chocolate is one of them. Hummus is hummus and chocolate is chocolate and never the train should meet!!!

I love chocolate, and I like hummus, but I can't imagine them being good together.
