Yum! Ive tried many different tofu mousses, but this one is one of the best as far as taste and texture go. Very smooth and chocolatey. I opted to use some mashed banana instead of the powdered sugar for sweetness, but other than that stuck to your recipe and really enjoyed it. <br/>Thank you so much for sharing this keeper with us, Jen!<br/>Made and reviewed for Veggie Swap #61 August 2013.

This is a pretty good dessert with a tofu base. I used the whole carton of soft silken tofu (19 oz) and increased the chocolate accordingly (I probably used 9 oz of chocolate). I used a mix of semi sweet and milk chocolate, which turned out fine. I also used Kahlua instead of brandy and white sugar instead of confectioners'. I also added a few dashes of cinnamon. I was worried about the texture of this, but after sitting in the fridge overnight it came out mousse-like in texture. Thanks for a great way to use up some tofu and make a healthy-ish dessert!

This was good, but I would have liked a stronger chocolate flavor, maybe a bit of Kahlua and smoother tofu (perhaps I didn't blend it long enough?) I did appreciate the health aspects of this dish and I think I'll keep experimenting with it. I plan on continuing to watch the reviews for more tips. Thanks so much for posting this; it's hard finding reasonably healthy recipes that satisfy my chocolate cravings!
