Ingredients:

1 12.3 ounce package reduced fat silken tofu (1 1/2 cups)
3 ounces good quality bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened), finely chopped
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup boiling water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest
2/3 cup confectioners' sugar
2/3 cup chocolate wafer crumbs (3 ounces)

Directions:

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 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. Spoon about 2 teaspoons chocolate crumbs into each of 5 parfait glasses or dessert dishes. Add about 1/4 cup mousse, then layer with another 2 teaspoons crumbs. Tow with another 1/4 cup mousse and finish with a sprinkling of crumbs. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Makes 5 servings about 1/2 cup each.
