Quite the show stopper, this chocolate pie has almost no prep work and can be on the table in just over 2 hours making it perfect for last minute entertaining. It has a rich chocolatey taste that is incredibly silky and decadent… and actually fairly healthy.
The main ingredient is TOFU! Before telling my guests what is in it, I let them ooh and ahh over how delicious it is. I know you might be hesitant about using tofu, but when chilled with melted chocolate it makes a pudding that is silky, slightly fluffy, and rich without being overpowering.
Easiest Silky (Tofu) Chocolate Pie
Makes 1 pie ♦ prep time 15 minutes ♦ inactive prep 2 hours
1 pound silken or soft tofu, drained
14 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons coffee flavored liqueur or brewed coffee
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon honey
1 chocolate cookie pie crust
Fresh fruit like banana or raspberries (optional garnish)
Whipped cream (optional garnish)
Slice the tofu into 1-inch wide chunks and place in blender; set aside.
In a double boiler, melt the chocolate. Stir in the coffee liqueur or brewed coffee and vanilla. Stir until smooth and combined. Add the chocolate mixture to the tofu in the blender along with honey. Puree until smooth and combined (about 1 minute.)
Pour the chocolate tofu filling into the pie shell. Use a spatula to smooth out the top. Refrigerate for 2 hours, or until set.
Serve with sliced fruit or whipped cream. You can make the pie up to a day in advance.
Note: this filling makes awesome chocolate pudding cups. Make the chocolate silk as directed, but instead of pouring into a pie shell, pour into individual containers. Let set in the fridge. Pudding will last in the fridge for up to a week.
