I made this for my best friends birthday because she loves peanut-butter and chocolate and she loved it. I was afraid to tell people it had tofu in it but they kept asking me for the recipe! It's very simple to make, I just wish I could find an organic silken tofu. . . .
This is also from the New Laurel's Kitchen cookbook. I think that there are different versions in different publications of this cookbook. Anyway, the only change I've made is to substitute cherries for the raisins.
From The America's Test Kitchen Cookbook. My friend made these for our "bunco" group recently and they were delicious. I like the fact that it is all natural. It's more work than the typical bottled mixes but well worth the time. For the smoothest and most affordable flavor, use a reposado (rested in wood) tequila made from 100 percent blue agave (aged 12 months or less).
The original recipe called for chicken and I won a chili competition with it a couple of years ago. I found that recipe on cooks.com and have since made this vegetarian version that tastes as good as the original according to my meat-eating husband. The tempeh taste was pretty strong the first day but the flavors melded by day 2. So, I've decided not to reduce the amount of tempeh in the recipe.
