Place the chickpeas in the bowl of the food processor. Blend till smooth. Add all the other ingredients except the eggs and process on high for 3-5 minutes, scraping down sides as needed, until mixture is smooth and well blended.

Beat the eggs in a separate bowl till light and fluffy. Add to the chickpea mix and beat for another 2-3 minutes to mix well.

Scoop the chocolate mixture into glass ramekins or dessert bowls and finish off with almond flour, almond sprinkles and a pinch of cacao,
