Decadent Chocolate Mousse

Submitted by: SARAGRIFFIN

Introduction

You'll never guess the base for this rich, silken mousse is tofu! You'll never guess the base for this rich, silken mousse is tofu!
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    INGREDIENTS
    12 oz Silken Tofu (I have used Mori-Nu soft tofu for this)
    12 oz Chocolate Chips (I have used Ghiririadhelli Semi Sweet. I imagine the dark would work but would be richer)
    3 T Maple Syrup (Real Stuff, don't try Processed Syrup Product)

Directions

METHOD
Open the tofu, and drain.

Toss the Tofu into a food processor and turn it on.

While that is happening, stack 2 saucepans on your stove top. In the little one, put some water. In the medium one, put the chocolate. Be sure, the little one is under the big one.

(You probably should have turned off the food processor by now.)

Turn the burner on under the little pot AS HOT AS IT WILL GO.

Once the chocolate chips are completely melted, add the Maple Syrup. Suddenly it will change consistancy on you. Say "The recipe didn't say anything about it turning into chocolate fudge taffy!". Re-read this part. Feel better about it.

Put the newly forged chocolatefudgetaffy into the food proc as well. Turn it on for about 3 mintues. Be sure to scrape the spare tofu off the wall down into the mixture with a spatula.

Pour into 6 individual serving-size dishes - pretty teacups make an especially beautiful presentation. Chill for several hours before serving.

This is not low calorie per say (Due to all of the glorious chocolate) but it is a splendid, smart choice for a splurge - the chocolate has antioxidants and the tofu adds protein. It is a gorgeous dessert sure to impress anyone. Don't tell them it's tofu until they are licking their spoon!
