Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place the butter, graham crackers, and almonds into a food processor. Cover, and pulse until the mixture resembles a coarse crumb. Transfer the crumbs to a 9-inch pie plate, and press into the bottom of the plate to form a crust. Wash and dry the bowl of the food processor; set aside.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven, and cool for 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler over just-barely simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Place the chocolate, tofu, and vanilla extract into the cleaned food processor. Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides several times. Pour chocolate mixture into the prepared crust. Chill for 4 hours before serving.

Saw this on ARTV. Just had to make it. Love the crust flavor. Subbed in a little bit of pecans with the almonds. Good flavor on the filling, even with the dreaded tofu, LOL! Tastes like a chocolate pudding pie. The crust crumbled for me trying to get it out of the pan, still tasted great all mixed in with the filling. I microwaved the chips to melt, worked fine. Just 45 seconds and stir, less time at the end. I had extra filling left over, I would suggest a deeper pie plate as the crust was thick in my shallow 9". In the video she says to only cook it 10 minutes and didn't cool it before she put the filling in. Try it, you'll like it! Thanks for the recipe.

This turned out very rich. It was a little too rich for my husbands tastes. No one guessed that it had tofu in it.

Seriously tasty. My tofu-'hating' fiancee loved this dessert.
