chocolate peanut butter tofu mousse.

It's time to revive this space after nearly two weeks of silence! The truth is, I wanted to make a layer cake but in consideration of my recent overseas trip that involved a lot of eating, I decided to take the healthy-ish route for the time being. Although, I must say that the only thing healthy about this mousse is the tofu. The mousse still contains melted chocolate and not just cocoa powder for the chocolaty element and two full tablespoons of peanut butter. Not to mention the refined sugar.

The good thing is that you don't feel like you're cheating yourself of a proper dessert. This mousse is extremely chocolaty with the peanut butter very noticeably coming through. Fans of Reese's peanut butter cups, you have your recipe. It is also so ridiculously creamy and thick it's almost like pudding. The tofu taste is pretty apparent though. It may take some getting used to but I personally liked it.

I highly recommend that you eat this with a spoonful of red berry jam. It does get a little rich after a while so the jam provides some refreshing relief.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Tofu Mousse
adapted from here

1 (12.3-ounce) package silken tofu, drained
2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp peanut butter

Blend the tofu until smooth.

In a double boiler, heat the chocolate, cocoa powder, water and sugar until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract and peanut butter.

Add the chocolate mixture to the tofu and blend until smooth and combined. Divide the mixture amongst jars/ramekins and refrigerate until completely chilled.
