“This is my favorite tofu magic trick. I’ve served this pie to dozens of unsuspecting dessert lovers, and not one has suspected the curd within.”—Alton Brown
Alton Brown’s Moo-Less Chocolate Pie
(Makes 8 servings)
- 13 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup coffee liqueur
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 pound silken tofu
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 9-inch ready-made chocolate wafer crust
Place enough water in bottom of 4-quart saucepan to come 1 inch up sides. Bring to simmer over medium heat. Place chocolate chips and liqueur in medium metal mixing bowl, set over simmering water, and stir with a rubber or silicone spatula until melted. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Combine tofu, chocolate mixture, and honey in a blender or food processor and spin until smooth (about 1 minute). Pour the filling into the crust and refrigerate for 2 hours or until filling sets firm.
