  Chocolate Tahini Dip with Apples | Reclaiming Yesterday

[I made this easy, creamy Chocolate Tahini Dip with Apples for Earth Fare!]

Who here is as obsessed with tahini as I am?? To be honest, I wasn’t sure how I felt about tahini when I first tried it a few years ago. But now, it’s one of my favorite pantry staples! 

Tahini is ground sesame seeds, so it’s like nut butter–but with a sesame flavor. It’s creamy, nutty, and has just a *slight* bitter taste that I love. It’s the secret to hummus, but it’s delicious in salad dressings, tuna salad, and even sweet treats!

And in my opinion, it goes great with chocolate. πŸ˜‹ πŸ«

To make this ridiculously easy dip, you just mix some creamy tahini together with unsweetened cocoa powder (so healthy and full of antioxidants!), maple syrup, vanilla, and a pinch of salt. Then all that’s left to do is to thin it out with some water, and DIP.

(Or spread, spoon, dunk, go right in with your finger, etc. – how you enjoy your tahini chocolate dip is entirely your business.)

One of MY favorite ways to enjoy this easy dip is with crisp, fresh apple slices. Crunchy apples are the perfect vehicle in my mind to dip up this delicious chocolatey goodness. 

Plus, fall is here and I can’t get enough of them! πŸŽπŸŽπŸŽ

Other ways to enjoy chocolate tahini dip 

  • Mixed into or drizzled over oatmeal πŸ˜
  • Spread over warm toast 
  • Used in place of syrup on pancakes and waffles
  • Spooned over sliced bananas
  • I could go on and on here, but you get the picture!

SO MANY CHOCOLATELY POSSIBILITIES. Is your mind running wild with ideas yet??

PS- When K did the taste testing for this, he asked “can we patent this?” πŸ˜‚
