Tofu Chocolate Pudding Recipe

Tofu Chocolate Pudding Recipe

This is one of the simplest recipes I have ever made yet it is also one of the most delicious.

The texture and body of the tofu blends into a thick, smooth mixture which is almost mousse-like, aided by the cocoa butter from the chocolate. Do not skimp on the refrigeration time though – the longer the pudding sits in the fridge, the better the flavor will be.

If you want a sweeter pudding, use milk chocolate chips instead of dark chocolate chips.
