1 12.3 oz pkg of reduced-fat silken tofu (1.5 cups)
3 oz good quality bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened) finely chopped
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup boiling water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp freshly grated orange zest
2/3 cup confectioners' sugar
2/3 cup chocolate wafer crumbs
- Puree tofu in a food processor (I use my blender), scraping down the sides, until completely smooth
- 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.
- Spool some crumbs into bottom of 5 parfait glasses. Add 1/4 cup of mousse, then layer with crumbs, more mousse and more crumbs. (I actually skip the crumbs all together and just spoon in the mousse.)
- Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.
