Ingredients

Crust

  • 6 graham crackers
  • ½ cup medjool dates pit removed
  • 2 Tbsp softened unsalted butter vegan or traditional

Filling

  • 1 14-oz package silken tofu 400 g, drained
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups dark chocolate chips or chunks

Instructions

  • Crust: Blitz graham crackers, halved dates, and butter in a food processor until evenly mixed and crumbly. Lightly grease an 8 or 9 inch pie pan*, then press crust mixture into the bottom and up the sides.
  • Filling: Wipe clean the food processor then blitz tofu, cocoa powder, sweetener, and vanilla until smooth.
  • Melt Chocolate: Melt chocolate using a double boiler. If you do not have one, place chocolate in a small saucepan. In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil. Hold small saucepan over boiling water for about 30 seconds, stirring constantly, until chocolate has melted. 
  • Chocolate Explosion: With food processor running, slowly pour melted chocolate into tofu mixture.
  • Refrigerate: Pour filling into crust and even out the top with a spoon. Cover and place in fridge for 2 to 3 hours, until firm. Serve with whipped cream and fresh berries.

Notes

  • *If using a bigger pie pan than this, double the whole recipe.
  • You can use shortbread or an similar type cookies for the crust if you don't have graham crackers in your area.
  • You can use milk or semi-sweet chocolate if you aren't strictly vegan and don't like the taste of dark chocolate.
  • You can use maple extract instead of vanilla extract for a different flavor profile (I accidentally used it in one of the trial runs and everyone loved it!)
