Dear readers, did you all have a wonderful Christmas celebration? We most certainly did in our home, had a great day of food and fun. Now that Christmas is over, you can now start planning (again!) for your New Year's eve meal. Here is a simple yet delicious chocolate tofu mousse with Bailey's which you can serve to your guests.
I am not a fan of using raw eggs in my desserts, so when I saw this recipe on my friend Mich's blog which uses tofu instead, I immediately bookmarked it to try. The resulting dessert was really good, you won't be able to tell that tofu has been used. Silky smooth, very rich and decadent. The addition of alcohol is optional, you can make non-alcoholic ones for the kids. For the adults, I like using Bailey's since it's one of my favorite liqueur in desserts. You can serve it in tall wine glasses or highballs, to suit the theme of your New Year's Eve party.
An elegant dessert to be served at your NYE's party!
Rich and decadent!
Chocolate Tofu Mousse with Bailey's
Recipe adapted from here
Preparation time: 10-15 minutes
300g silken tofu, drained
120g high quality semi-sweet or dark chocolate, broken into pieces
30g unsweetened cocoa powder
60ml cup boiled water
1 tbsp almond milk/soy milk/fresh milk
1 tbsp soy milk powder (if using fresh milk)
50g caster sugar
3-4 tbsp of Bailey's Irish Cream
3-4 fresh strawberries, hulled
1. Place the chocolate with cocoa powder, almond milk, water, liquor and sugar in a heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water. Stir occasionally. Once the chocolate has melted remove from the heat.
2. Using a hand blender, blend the silken tofu until very smooth, then gently fold into the chocolate mixture.
3. Divide between the serving dishes (you can use a highball glass or wine glass) and chill for at least an hour in the fridge. Garnish with fresh strawberries before serving.
