It's like a bowl of cookie dough—only instead of being full of butter, sugar and raw eggs, this uses yummy alternatives that happen to be better for you. (Okay, except for the chocolate chips. Those are still the same, if you want them to be.)

Chocolate-Covered Katie, creator of the recipe, freely admits she has no sweet tooth. Meanwhile, I'm the opposite. So I can tell you: go for the full 1/4 cup sweetener. (I used agave nectar since I had it on hand [because I bought it to use on my hair. I'm weird, huh.]) I also found that both chilling it and storing it seemed to make the chickpea/hummus flavor more pronounced, so every time I pulled it out (yes, somehow our family made this last three days), I added a little more peanut butter and agave nectar to counteract that.
As per Katie's request, I'm not reposting the recipe here—just telling you that if you pinned this and haven't tried it yet (okay, even if you haven't pinned it!), give it a try!
One suggestion: do not mention that there are chickpeas/garbanzos in this when you serve it. Do like Katie did and let people try it on their own before they know it's healthy.
