We have this pretty regularly – and with minor modifications it can even fill a pie crust and make a delicious chocolate pie, be one of many different flavours. That’s pretty good for a pie that can be vegan.
This pie is based on Chocolate Covered Katie’s recipe. And when I say based on – there is not really so much you can improve upon perfection so most of the changes are to make it metric and slightly less to suit the size of tofu I can get in my supermarket 🙂 Chocolate Covered Katie is one of my absolute favourite blogs, and I highly recommend checking out her blog, even if you’re not vegan. The recipes are amazing. Plus, there is the word chocolate in the title, how much more convincing do you need?
But back to the moose:
Secret Ingredient Chocolate moose
(adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie’s Chocolate Fudge Pie)
- 300g silken tofu (if you use firm you can make a pie rather than moose)
- 1 tsp cocoa powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp + 2 tsp milk
- 200g 70% cocoa chocolate (for my dark chocolate moose – for other flavours use different chocolate, milk, orange, even fruit and nut!)
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- pinch salt
- Melt chocolate
- Combine all ingredients in blender
- Chill for several hours
That’s it. Seriously. It’s that easy. And it’s absolutely delicious. The first time I made this I didn’t tell my little brother what it was made of and he spent five minutes ranting about it before I told him that it had tofu in it (and he does not like tofu).
This is my favourite version – dark chocolate moose with raspberries on top. My mother’s favourite is milk chocolate in a pie crust made with firm tofu. There are so many different ways to experiment with this recipe, which makes it one of my favourites of all time. There will definitely more variations on this posted in the future.
