    Kathi Ann's Note:

    ***Inspired by Alton Brown's Moo-less Chocolate Pie.*** Happy New Year! I am happy to present this decadent and (yes!) healthy recipe for an awesome dessert which I made for Christmas dinner 2011, not knowing what it would taste like. "Oh my!" I would never have guessed it wasn't totally sinful if I didn't already know. You rarely can go wrong w/an Alton Brown recipe, so I knew it'd be good, just not *this* good! Silken tofu: where have you been all my life?!? Note: I have made a few minor adjustments to ingredients and order of incorporation, which worked better for me, and hopefully will for you, too. Prep time includes 2 hours for chilling in the refrigerator post-assembly. (The original recipe can be found here: http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/alton-browns-dairy-free-chocolate-pie)
