intense, heavenly chocolate is all you'll think about when you taste this 
dessert, though it's packed with all the good things found in tofu. make 
sure the tofu is gossamer-smooth before adding the chocolate mixture.

1   123ounce 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 tsp  vanilla extract
1/2 tsp  freshly grated orange zest
2/3 cup  confectioners' sugar
2/3 cup  chocolate wafer crumbs (3 ounces) (see notes)
many commercial cookies and wafers contain partially hydrogenated oil, a 
source of trans-fatty acids. fortunately, brands made without these oils, 
such as newman's own organics and mi-del, are every bit as tasty. look for 
them in the natural foods section of large supermarkets. 
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 the 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. top 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.
