No-Fuss Chocolate Mousse

"This decadent dessert is simple and delicious, and I promise you won't even taste the tofu! I save this for special occasions and serve it in a small wine glass or dessert cup, but it would also do well in a pie shell of your choice."

Ready In:




  • Melt chocolate chips however you like-- I like the microwave; set aside& let cool if necessary.
  • Whiz up the tofu in the blender along with vanilla and salt, then add melted chocolate and blend until well combined.
  • Fold in whipped topping by hand.
  • Divide into serving dishes (or pour into baked& cooled pie shell).
  • Refrigerate until set- I'm guessing on the setting time of 30 minutes because I've never timed it.

  1. Delicious and easy! What more can you say? Thanks! Reviewed for the Veg*n Recipe Swap.
  2. Mmm--mmm-mmm!!! I was in the mood for something chocolately (which is 90% of the time) and had some silken tofu, so I tried this recipe. I used only 6 oz. of chocolate chips (trying to count calories) and it was still very rich and flavorful. This was truly no-fuss and makes an elegant dessert. Thanks Linorama!
  3. Oh My. This is extremely chocolatey! I even added a whole tub of cool whip like someone had suggested. It is very good, and no one would guess from the texture or taste that there's tofu in it. It's really RICH though, so next time I'll use a milk chocolate, or less chocolate altogether.
  4. This is so good and so easy and it's true, you wouldn't know it was tofu. My husband HAAAAAAATES tofu and when I told him I was making it, he whined and whined and begged me to make "real" chocolate mousse but I told him to just give it a try and he liked it.
  5. Wow! I am sooo impressed. This is absolutely decadent-tasting and you're right, Linorama, you would never-in-a-million-years guess that it's tofu. I found this really firm and intensely chocolate after folding in 4 ounces of whipped topping so I went ahead and added the remaining 4 ounces. Wonder what this would be like made with quality chocolate? Hmmm...may have to do more "research". One thing's for certain, there can't possibly be a better way to eat tofu. Ordinarily a recipe with all this chocolate would raise my blood sugar and eventually leave me craving more of the same. I'm guessing it was the soy protein that helped to mediate that effect and I avoided feeling that low blood sugar letdown. What a great rationalization for more mousse.


Thanks for visiting my page! I'm a stay-at-home wife and mother - married for 20 years with a 16-year old daughter. It seems funny to be married so long since it just feels like yesterday when my handsome groom and I walked down the aisle. I love to cook and especially bake. I bake a lot less than I used to just because it's too tempting for me to have all those goodies sitting around. But give me a good snow day, and the oven goes into high gear! I like to sew & quilt, draw & paint, read, and play word games. My husband and I are total nerds -- we Tivo Jeopardy every day. :-) We all love old movies, especially anything with Cary Grant, Fred Astaire, Jimmy Stewart, Myrna Loy, William Powell, etc. OH - and Andy Hardy movies - they're the best!
