    yummy, I am so making it over the weekend! My bf seems to be allergic to the word ' vegan' , so I will “forget” to mention the tofu part 😉 Thanks for another fab recipe!

    Chocolate and orange are such a great duo! I've always been intrigued with desserts made with tofu – I'll have to give them one a try!

    This looks amazing! I'm all for sneaky desserts so I'll have to try this out. I got some tofu to do something like this before, but I was too scared and eventually put it in the freezer. But this recipe inspires me! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

      I hope you do eventually try it out, it definitely surprised me! Tofu… who would have thought!?

    The picture is perfect and after reading the recipe what amazes me more is that you tried it in the first place!

    Interesting, since it's with tofu. It looks so good though I might have to try it!

    I'm very interested in trying this, but I am concerned that the orange zest is gritty, or at least detracts from the smoothness of the mousse. What was your feeling about the orange zest's texture in this recipe?

      I didn't notice the orange zest at all within the mousse! I have a super sharp Microplane zester that creates very fine pieces of zest. Also, really scrubbing your orange clean and using an organic orange helps.

    This mousse must be amazing! All the ingredients are so perfect, I bet the final result is even better than the sum of all its parts :-). And the pics are gorgeous too – can go right to a cooking magazine cover!

    I LOVED this recipe!! I am vegan, and have been longing for chocolate recipes that are vegan-friendly. Thank you SOOOO much! I didn’t feel like orange when I made it, so I omitted the orange zest. I also replaced the bittersweet chocolate with extra dark chocolate, and I replaced the wafer crumbs with sliced strawberries and toasted almonds (using that as my layering and topping). Otherwise I followed the recipe to the T. It turned out AMAZING! Thank you again for such a delicious recipe! I’m going to make this all the time for my friends and family.
