Guaranteed to go viral; everyone wants the recipe, and they'll never know it has tofu! It's an easy, rich, and creamy chocolate mousse that is adapted from a vegan version. It is much healthier than regular chocolate mousse. Try adapting it further by adding coffee for a mocha mousse, peanut butter, or even strawberry jelly! It can be served immediately but it will set up further when chilled.

The texture of this was fantastic. My husband said it reminded him of frosting and he wouldn t be opposed to having it on cupcakes. I felt it was a bit too sweet. I think next time I might try using unsweetened chocolate and adding the same amount of sugar. I used a combo of 60 64 and 70% chocolate (odds and ends from the freezer) and used a hand mixer (because I hate washing the food processor) and it was fine. Probably could have been even better in that or the blender but was still pretty great. I used a scale to measure and another possibility to make it less sweet could have been more tofu. My package was 16 ounces and it called for 12 so maybe if I had used it all it would have been a little more mellow. Overall pretty enjoyable and I would make it again. Read More

This was super easy to make using a hand blender. Most desserts are too sweet so I made this one with 72% chocolate plus two teaspoons sugar. It was delicious but a bit dense. Perhaps less chocolate would lighten it up. The presentation included a thin top layer of creme fraiche raspberries and sliced almonds. Delicious. Read More
