Tofu Chocolate Mousse

Tofu and Chocolate. It's no dream combination, and we fully disclose that you should not try this unless you actually like the taste of tofu. But for the super health-conscious and those who just want chocolate with everything, this actually wasn't so bad.

In the interest of experimentation, we went with a random recipe from the internet for "healthy" tofu chocolate mousse. Sadly, we were led astray. Following the directions, we ended up with a mousse that tasted like chocolate-flavored tofu. It was gross. We fixed it by adding more sugar and chocolate, and we posted the recipe with our own ratios below. We decided to layer ours with the graham cracker crumbs leftover from our homemade marshmallows, and it resulted in a delightful texture contrast and crunch.

The final verdict? Probably wouldn't do this again, but definitely glad we tried it.

1 package (15 oz.) soft tofu
5 oz. dark chocolate (about 1 1/2 bars), chopped
2/3 cups cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar
1/3 cup water
2 tsp vanilla
graham cracker crumbs and whipped cream (optional)

Drain the tofu, and food process it until smooth. Boil the water, and pour it over the cocoa powder and chopped chocolate. Stir until smooth. Mix in the vanilla and sugar. Add the chocolate mixture to the tofu and process again until the entire mixture is chocolate-colored. Serve with graham bits and whipped cream.
