Chocolate Mousse (Made with Tofu!)

So, an impromptu cooking adventure with one of my best friends from home, Zoe, happened last night. She had found a recipe for chocolate mousse made with tofu on a blog called Chocolate Covered Katie (damnit, could've stolen that name, haha!) So we decided to make it, and it turned out to be SUPER chocolatey...almost too much for me, but Zoe and her sister loved it! 

You will need:
-12 oz package of silken-firm tofu
-1 tsp cocoa powder
-1.5 cups chocolate chips
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-2 tbsp milk (your choice what kind)
-1/8 tsp of salt
-1 or 2 tbsp of agave (to taste!)

First, melt the chocolate (either on the stove or in the microwave). We used dark chocolate chips, which made the mousse VERY rich...I might use semi-sweet next time, but I guess you can never have too much chocolate, right?!

Next, add everything from the above list to the blender! 

Then, the chocolate, of course!

Then mix it up, sweeten to your liking, and chill in the fridge for about an hour! 

MMMMMMMMMMMM...chocolate... :)

Happy eating!

Once again, this is VERY rich mousse...if you don't want it to be super rich, maybe hold off on the cocoa powder until you taste it? I think that's what I will try next time!
