Recipe for cooking Chocolate-0range Silk Mousse. Intense, heavenly chocolate is all you'll think about when you taste this dessert.


  • 1 package (12.3-ounce) reduced-fat silken tofu (1 1/2 cups)
  • 3 ounces good-quality bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened), finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest
  • 2/3 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2/3 cup chocolate wafer crumbs (3 ounces) (see note above)


  1. Makes 5 servings, about 1/2 cup each.
  2. 1. Purée tofu in a food processor, scraping down the sides as needed, until completely smooth.
  3. 2. Combine chocolate and cocoa in a medium bowl. Add boiling water and stir with a wooden spoon until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth. Stir in vanilla and orange zest. Mix in confectioners' sugar, a little at a time, until smooth. Add the chocolate mixture to the processor; puree until smooth and well blended, scraping down the sides as needed.
  4. To make wafer crumbs: Place wafers in a ziplock plastic bag, seal and crush with a rolling pin. Alternatively, pulse wafers in a food processor.
  5. 3. Spoon about 2 teaspoons chocolate crumbs into each of 5 parfait glasses or dessert dishes. Add about 1/4 cup mousse, then layer with another 2 teaspoons crumbs. Top with another 1/4 cup mousse and finish with a sprinkling of crumbs. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
