Chocolate Mousse

Hello all! New here! I'm not officially "VEGAN" as of yet but I am working on perhaps someday becoming vegan! =)

OK, I found a recipe for chocolate mousse in the archives (LINK) but I realized that it isn't the same as my recipe. This is a recipe my father and I sort of made up after seeing multiple recipies that were similar to it, we sort of combined ideas. I just made a vegan version of it, which tastes better =P

Chocolate Mousse


  • 16 oz. Firm Tofu (I use Silken brand)

  • 6 oz. Chocolate Chips (I use Ghiradelli's Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips)

  • Up to 4 oz. of your choice of sweetener (personally, I use sugar)


  1. Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler, stirring often. I highly recommend that you do NOT use anything other than a double boiler to melt the chocolate! Chocolate is very tempermental about being melted and can loose flavour if you say, put it in the microwave, etc.

  2. Drain the water from around the tofu in the container (you drain it because the mousse will "leak" a watery-icky-yuck later on if you don't drain it!) then put all of it into a food processor and process until smooth and creamy.

  3. Move the tofu to a bowl. With a rubber spatula, fold the melted chocolate into the tofu. Once the tofu and chocolate are a consistent colour, begin adding sugar/sweetener to taste (add about 1 tablespoon at a time).

  4. Refridgerate for at least 1 half hour before serving, freezing is not necessary.

***Note that the mousse will always have a tiny bitter chocolate "edge" to it, it won't taste like some sweet chocolates do. Therefore, if you're looking for a sticky-sweet-chocolatey-treat... this probably isn't the right recipe for it. =P

ENJOY!!! I know this recipe is simple, but it tastes so good! Use it on it's own, in a pie crust, or on top of another dessert! ;D Please let me know if you have any feedback. =)
