If you happen to have a set of cheap party silverware, use them here to keep your everyday silverware free. Mix-matched old measuring spoons work great too. Otherwise, using ramekins or small bowls works great too.
Vegan Chocolate Mousse
12 oz package of silken tofu (soft kind preferred)
8 oz semi-sweet or dark chocolate, chips or bars (check ingredients to ensure vegan-ness)
3-4 tablespoons agave syrup (or homemade simple sugar syrup)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Start by melting the chocolate in a double boiler or (carefully) in the microwave.
In a blender, blend the tofu until completely smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the melted chocolate, agave syrup and vanilla extract and blend to combine.
- for spoonfuls: transfer mousse to a bowl or small pyrex, cover with plastic and refrigerate at least 2 hours. Then, fill the spoons with mousse, place on a baking sheet and freeze. Transfer to an air-tight container or bag.
- for ramekins/bowls: transfer the mousse to the ramekins/bowls, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until set, at least 1 hour.
