Chocolate Mousse Tower

Ingredients

212 cups vegan semisweet chocolate chips

1 cup soy milk

1 pound silken tofu

34 cup maple syrup

Chocolate shavings, for garnish

Peanuts, almonds, or cashews, for garnish (optional)

Directions

Put the chocolate chips and soy milk in the top of a double boiler set over simmering water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate has melted. Set aside to cool a bit.

Put the tofu, maple syrup, and melted chocolate mixture in a blender and process until smooth, about 3 minutes. Lightly coat six 3 by 1-inch ring molds or ramekins with safflower oil. Divide the chocolate mixture equally between the molds and chill in the refrigerator overnight.

Unmold each tower, garnish with chocolate shavings and nuts, if desired, and serve at once. If using ramekins, serve directly from the ramekins.

YIELD: 6 servings
