Chocolate Mousse~

Can't get enough of chocolate treats!!
Derek & I have a wedding coming up very soon. . . October 2012 soon!  One of the the things we wanted was a vegan wedding. Not only are we doing an all vegan menu, but all of our decorations will be recycled and vintage, minus the fresh flowers from our friends garden. Some may think it is too stressful to do it all yourself, and it is a bit, but Derek & I love cooking, throwing parties for our friends and I love to decorate! So it should be a win win adventure lol.

Since we are going to be creating the vegan menu ourselves we will be doing a lot of  trial runs & taste testing. I love our vegan foods to have bold flavors and make a disbeliever - believe that vegan food does in fact taste excellent!

I am looking for easy recipes we can make for 100 people that won't take up too much time or $.

The 1st of our taste testing adventures we went straight for the desert table with a Chocolate Mousse packed with protein. Check it out!!

What you will need:
-1 package firm tofu (cut up into cubes)
-1 tsp cocoa powder
-1 1/3 cups chocolate chips (I use organic semi-sweet chocolate chips by SunSpire)
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-2 tbsp almond  or soy milk
a pinch salt
3-4 tbsp sugar (you can taste as you make it to determine how much you want)

~Melt the chocolate chips, if you are using your stove put them in a non stick pan on low - make sure you keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn.
~Put all of your above ingredients into a food processor and blend until really smooth. You maybe able to use a blender, but the texture is much better with a processor.
~Pour into individual jars or cups.
~Put the mousse in the fridge to chill.  It get's firmer the longer it sits.
~After it is chilled add your favorite fruit and decorate your cup/jars for fun.


  1. If you have a Ninja blender (I bought the cheap $40 one at Walmart), it will come out super smooth, better than the food processor. It turns frozen strawberries and some agave into silken sorbet.

    1. Ninja blender? hmm I must try that!! It would be much more affordable then purchasing a processor! Thank you for the awesome tip!! <3
