I based this on a recipe by Ellie Krieger. If you don't tell anyone they'll never know it has tofu in it.

What about this recipe makes it low-fat? The saturated fat is extremely high. It may be slightly less fatty than other mousse recipes but it definitely does not qualify as low-fat. You're better off just eating Chocolate Mousse Whips.
- 1 (16 ounce) package silken tofu, drained
- 6 ounces high quality bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
- 1⁄4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (preferably Dutch-processed)
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1 tablespoon brandy (optional)
- 1 tablespoon espresso or 1 tablespoon strong coffee
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1⁄4 cup heavy cream
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons chocolate shavings
Directions See How It's Made
- In a food processor or blender puree the tofu until it is smooth.
- Put the chopped chocolate, cocoa powder, water and brandy in the top of a double boiler or a heat-proof bowl. Place over a pot containing 1-inch of barely simmering water. Stir frequently, until melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Mix in 1/2 cup of sugar, a little at a time, until smooth.
- Add the chocolate mixture to the tofu and puree until well blended. Spoon the mousse into individual serving dishes or one large serving dish. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
- Whip the cream with an electric mixer. When the cream is almost completely whipped, add the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of sugar and finish whipping. Top each serving with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of chocolate shavings and serve.
