This chocolate pudding is thick and decadent, almost more of a vegan mousse than a pudding. It sets up easily and is so pretty in individual serving dishes.
Asian markets have silken tofu (actually, any kind of tofu) at a much better price than mainstream grocery stores. Mori-Nu is a great brand that is often also available at mainstream grocery stores. For dairy-free chocolate chips, try Trader Joe’s or Ghirardelli semi-sweet.

1 box silken tofu, firm or extra-firm (12.3 ounces)
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler or in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between. Put all ingredients into blender or food processor and mix until well-blended. Spoon into individual serving dishes and chill for 1 hour. Serve with chopped nuts or sliced bananas for garnish.
