Chocolate Mousse or Chocolate Mouse Pie

Serves 8

2 packages lite silken tofu

12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips or bars

1 tablespoon maple syrup or liqueur such as Kahlua or Grand Marnier, if desired

1-4 tablespoon soymilk

Melt chocolate in the microwave, or in a double boiler, then remove it from the heat. Put tofu into food processor; add melted chocolate and process until smooth. Add syrup or liqueur, if using, and process. Add soymilk, 1 tablespoon at a time, and process to achieve desired consistency. Transfer into a graham cracker curst or small individual serving dishes.

Serve topped with raspberries or strawberries and garnish with mint or orange slices.

Variation: Add a chopped banana to the food processor when you process the tofu and chocolate together.
