Say Yes to Hummus for Dessert

I know, I know, I know. “Dessert Hummus” does not evoke images of sweet satisfaction, or really, of anything you might imagine normal people would voluntarily put in their mouths, let alone make. But trust me: this recipe tastes great. If you’re feeling super responsible, serve it up with apple slices for dipping. If you want to enjoy a full-on treat, spread a little on a few thin, crispy cookies.
