Vegetarian Chocolate Pie

Alton Brown has a recipe he calls Moo-less Chocolate Pie.

  • 13 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup coffee liqueur
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pound silken tofu, drained
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 (9-inch) prepared chocolate wafer crust

The New York Times makes the same thing adding spices and calls it “Mexican.”

1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon chile powder, or more to taste

I think it makes a lovely mousse, if you skip the crust.
