  • 3/4 Lb reduced-fat silken tofu
  • 3 Oz bittersweet chocolate , not unsweetened, finely chopped
  • 1/4 Cup cocoa powder , unsweetened
  • 4 Tbsp boiling water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp orange zest , freshly grates
  • 3/4 Cup confectioner's sugar
  • 3/4 Cup chocolate wafer crumbs
Puree tofu in a food processor, scraping down the sides as needed, until completely smooth. Combine chocolate and cocoa in a medium bowl. Add boiling water and stir with a wooden spoon until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth. Stir in vanilla and orange zest. Mix in confectioners' sugar, a little at a time, until smooth. Add the chocolate mixture to the processor; puree until smooth and well blended, scraping down the sides as needed.

[To make wafer crumbs: Place wafers in a ziplock plastic bag, seal and crush with a rolling pin. Alternatively, pulse wafers in a food processor.]

3. Spoon about 2 tsp chocolate crumbs into each parfait glass or dessert dish. Add about 1/4 cup mousse, then layer with another 2 tsp crumbs. Top with another 1/4 cup mousse and finish with a sprinkling of crumbs. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Each serving is about 1/2 cup.

The mousse will keep, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
