Creamy Olive Hummus Recipe: A Spooky & Healthy Halloween Snack

Trying to cut down on sugar this Halloween? Everyone may rethink the sugar for just a minute on Halloween when they can take a dip into this creepy olive hummus. With healthy ingredients and easy prep, this will be a new family favorite at Halloween and beyond.

To make this creamy olive hummus you will need a can of chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice (fresh is best), garlic, pitted kalamata olives, green olives stuffed with pimento, regular black olives, sour cream and whipped cream cheese. The sour cream and cream cheese will become the spooky spider web with the help of a plastic food storage bag or piping bag. (Don't worry, it's easy!)

Serve this easy olive hummus recipe as an appetizer or snack with vegetables, pita chips, breadsticks or crackers.

Recipe Notes

  • Don't just make this olive hummus on Halloween. Skip the web and spider steps and just serve in a bowl.
  • This olive hummus also makes a great sandwich spread.

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Add the chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice and garlic to a blender. Pulse until very smooth. Add a little of the reserved chickpea liquid, if needed.
  2. Add the olives and pulse until well combined. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Spoon mixture into a bowl.
  3. Cut the regular black olives to create a spider.
  4. Put the sour cream or cream cheese into a plastic sandwich bag and cut the tip off to create a piping bag. Squeeze a web shape onto the hummus. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
