Vegan chocolate mousse is one of those recipes that, when you first go vegan, every non-vegan in your life sees in a magazine or on a blog or something and gives to you, thinking 1.) it has a block of tofu in it, so they're not going to use it but 2.) you must need it because you're vegan. I mean, we've all seen this recipe, right? One block of aseptic-pack tofu (like Mori Nu), almost equal parts (10 oz) melted chocolate chips, mayyyybe some vanilla or sugar as the recipe varies. It sounds so simple, and so tofu-y, that I felt insulted the maaaany times someone was like "Oh. you're vegan? I saw a chocolate mousse recipe you'll love." So even though I've seen it at least 20 times since going vegan in 2005, I never made it until a year or so ago, when I needed a quick dessert.
the fiance loves it. He loves it so much, he wanted it instead of cake or cupcakes of cookies this year for his birthday!
