Your not going to believe this a healthier way of eating Chocolate? Yes it is true and this recipe I have made in the past, and totally forgot about it till I realized I still had Tofu in my fridge. That is correct I said tofu now don’t knock it if you have not tried it. Tofu sometimes I think has a bad rap, and really it should not. You can use Tofu in so many ways from Regular Entree’s to Desserts it is so true.
This Dessert is so easy to make takes like 10 minutes if you have a blender or a food Processor. It is so creamy and rich you would never know that tofu was really the main ingredient. I made this the other night for my Hubby and I, he was very impressed by it. To make it really have that rich flavor you really need to buy the dark Chocolate Chips along with some Baileys Irish Cream Liquor . I know it is a little late blogging this since you could of enjoyed this for Valentines day, but hey who cares you can enjoy this any time without the Guilt.
Baileys chocolate mousse
Yield: 4 servings
Total Time: 10 minutes
16 oz Firm tofu
1 cup dark chocolate chips, melted, I always use Ghiradelli
1/3 cup Baileys Irish cream Ummm excuse me I used more then that I used really 1/2 cup
1 Table spoon of Peanuts
1 tsp cacao powder
In a safe microwavable dish melt the chocolate chips in 45 second intervals stirring in between. Set aside.
In your food processor place the tofu and Baileys and pulse until smooth, you really want it nice and smooth and no lumps , It should take 1-2 minutes. Add the melted chocolate chips and pulse until everything is well incorporated. You may have to scrape the sides of the food processor a couple of times.
Divide mixture between four individual glasses and garnish with the cocoa powder and chopped peanuts if you like. Place mousse glasses in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 hours to harden.
