This stuff is amazing, it really is. It’s rich, chocolatey and the texture is so creamy and smooth. It comes together quickly and you can easily keep all the ingredients on hand, you know, incase of emergencies. I recommend the good quality chocolate, 75% or more, it’s loaded with iron and antioxidants. You can use any sweetener you like. Maple syrup is my favorite because it adds a nice depth of flavor, it’s already in liquid form so it will easily blend right in and it’s vegan. I’ve made this so many times now, I can’t even count and every time I’m just amazed by how good it tastes and how it leaves me feeling good too.
Start by melting the chocolate in a double boiler on the stove top on low heat.
As soon as it’s melted turn off the heat. Make sure not to get any water in the melted chocolate!
Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and combine.
11.5 oz silken tofu
1 bar good quality chocolate, I used 85%
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon natural vanilla
1 pinch of salt
Start by melting the chocolate in a double boiler over the stove on low heat. If you are using sugar you will need to liquify it. Just put the sugar in a pot with a few teaspoons of water over medium heat to dissolve and liquify. After the sugar and chocolate have cooled for a minute combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor to blend. This mousse tastes even better the next day after it has set and chilled.
You can use any sweetener you like. Maple syrup, honey, coconut sugar, brown sugar, stevia, etc. If you choose a liquid sweetener this dish will come together really quickly. My popular choice is about 4 tablespoons of maple syrup. If you would like to keep this vegan, make sure to get vegan chocolate and skip the honey.
