Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Place the butter, graham crackers, and almonds into a food processor. Cover, and pulse until the mixture resembles a coarse crumb. Transfer the crumbs to a 9-inch pie plate, and press into the bottom of the plate to form a crust. Wash and dry the bowl of the food processor; set aside.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven, and cool for 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler over just-barely simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Place the chocolate, tofu, and vanilla extract into the cleaned food processor. Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides several times. Pour chocolate mixture into the prepared crust. Chill for 4 hours before serving.

Cook's Notes

It can be made vegan by using vegan cookies in the crust and using vegan chocolate chips.

A peanut topping can be added by combining 3/4 cup of peanut butter with 1/2 cup of honey and a cup of whipped cream.

Saw this on ARTV. Just had to make it. Love the crust flavor. Subbed in a little bit of pecans with the almonds. Good flavor on the filling even with the dreaded tofu LOL! Tastes like a chocolate pudding pie. The crust crumbled for me trying to get it out of the pan still tasted great all mixed in with the filling. I microwaved the chips to melt worked fine. Just 45 seconds and stir less time at the end. I had extra filling left over I would suggest a deeper pie plate as the crust was thick in my shallow 9". In the video she says to only cook it 10 minutes and didn't cool it before she put the filling in. Try it you'll like it! Thanks for the recipe. Read More

It turned out really rich tasting! The flavour was too much for me. The vanilla extract was really noticeable and gave it an alcohol like taste(not good). Read More

This turned out very rich. It was a little too rich for my husbands tastes. No one guessed that it had tofu in it. Read More

This was extremely easy recipe and the finished product was delicious. I used a pre-made graham cracker crust due to laziness and soft tofu instead of silken because the store was out of it. If I did not make this myself I would not know that it was tofu. I also like that the recipe did not call for any added sugar. Read More

This was great! I made it exactly as the recipe said and I couldn't wait to eat it after tasting the filling. It was even better the second day when it was completely cold. I'm planning to try this again with a mint Newman O's crust and mint extract rather than vanilla in the filling. Read More

Really liked this recipe. I like dark chocolate so I subbed 2cups dark 1cup semisweet. I liked it but bf thought it was a bit bitter. So I made a peanut butter topping with just peanut butter semisweet chocolate and whipping cream blended quite thick. Spread it on top then topped it off with chopped (food processor) honey roasted and reg roasted almonds. It was SOOOO GOOD!!! Read More
