This recipe is such a stunner, and even more amazing, its vegan.  The texture is silky smooth- like the middle of a chocolate truffle.

Now before this turns off all the omnivores...  I'm not vegan and I think this is better than the non-vegan mousses I've made in the past.

the recipe shall we?


Silky Smooth Chocolate Mousse
based on Alton Brown's Moo-less Pie

In a double boiler over hot water(or ina microwave), combine to melt:

    * 2 cups of chocolate chips
    * 1/3 cup of coffee liquor, or espresso (or any flavorful liquid or soy milk)

Stir occassionally until the chocolate is completely melted. Allow to cool slightly.

In a blender, combine:

    * one 12.3oz package of silken style tofu
    * 1 Tbs of maple syrup
    * 1 tsp vanilla extract

Add the melted chocolate mixture to the blender and continue to blend until smooth.

Pour into small cute cups and refrigerate.
This makes 5-6 small dessert cups.

I thought all chocolate stuff had milk in it. or am i wrong? I can't find a bag of chocolate chips right now to check the ingredients, so I'm not really sure. But then it wouldn't be vegan would it?

i'm not vegan, but i know it is definitely possible to get chocolate that is vegan.  obviously, only dark chocolate would be...  there are quite a few sources available for vegan chocolate in health food stores and online.  carob is always a possibility too, but i have no idea how it would work.

good to point that out- vegan chocolate chips.

 I really like the Tropical Source chips in our local store.  They have coffee and mint chocolate flavored ones too.
Here's a link to show what the packaging looks like for those who are seeking...

ah cool. I'm not vegan (or even vegetarian) I was just wondering. Good to have recipes like that around for guests and such that are. Thanks for clearing that up!

You can also buy vegan chocolate online. I wonder what it would taste like with carob chips (I usually use those instead of chocolate chips), then maybe add a little cocoa... I bet that would still be fine. It looks delicious.

I just took these to work today.  One recipe divides into those little 4oz jam jars twelve times.

No one could believe it was tofu!
Also made this version with 1/3 c of soy creamer instead of the coffee/liquer.
