Dessert lovers and hummus enthusiasts, hold onto your hats, for there is some truly groundbreaking news in the ever evolving world of unusual sweets today. It's called dessert hummus.
I can feel your minds exploding.
Like traditional hummus, it's made with chickpeas, salt and culinary superpower tahini, but coconut milk and organic Turbinado sugar make the hummus creamy and sweet.
Who do we have to thank for this culinary breakthrough? Nutritionist Makenzie Marzluff, who first whipped up a batch of cookie dough hummus for a healthy party dessert.
Rightfully so, her friends were amazed, and Marzluff quit her job to start Delighted By, her own dessert hummus company.
Delighted By is available in four flavors: chocolate chip, brownie batter, orange ginger and snickerdoodle. They're all completely natural, vegan and gluten-free, according to the Delighted By website.
All of that flavor action lends plenty of freedom to choosing a hummus vehicle. Think cinnamon pita chips and graham crackers for the snickerdoodle flavor or pretzels and strawberries for the brownie batter blend. The hummus can also be used in more elaborate desserts and even breakfasts.
East Coasters lucked out; Delighted By can be found at 44 Wegman's locations. The rest of us can make a request with our local grocery store to carry the magical hummus. I haven't even tried it, but I can't imagine my life without it.
Your snack plans just got real.
