Bookmarked recipe Chocotofu Pudding

Other People's Food had a recipe that I have wanted to try for a while, Chocotofu Pudding. This is a recipe that I have been wanting to try for a while. It took less than 5 minutes to make, most of the time was melting the chocolate. With the cleaning up it took longer to make and clean than to eat. While the chocolate was melting in the microwave I used my new food processer to mix up the tofu.

Chocolate Soy Surprise Pudding
from the July issue of Taste For Life, a magazine supplement of Healthy Foods & Healthy Ways natural foods store.

1 container silken firm tofu
1/2 c. semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. dark chocolate chips
1/2 c. maple syrup
1 T. natural vanilla

Melt chocolate over low heat, a double boiler or in the microwave.

In food processor, blend tofu smooth, scraping sides as needed. Add in syrup and vanilla, blend to mix well. Add melted chocolate all at once, and blend to mix well, scraping if needed. Pour into a bowl and chill. Serve with fruit, angel food cake or by itself.

The chilled texture of this is similar to fine truffles. It is thick, dense and firm. Soften in the microwave before eating if you prefer.
