Silken Tofu Chocolate Moose

Silken Tofu chocolate Moose
An absolute Favourite of mine, delicious vegan chocolate moose, Tofu the hero in this, so versatile and soaks up any flavour you give it .
1 Pack of SILKEN tofu , the type of of tofu is really important as silken is smoother and is a much better texture.
1 shot of good dark rum – For This I recommend Kraken, because we are all a pirate at heart.
Zest of 1 lime , plus a squeeze of the liquid (not too much otherwise it becomes quite citrus and tangy but a small amount works well with the shot of rum )
150ml of maple syrup
And 2/3 teaspoons of vanilla pasta or extract
200g of melted dairy free dark chocolate – the key is good quality dark chocolate – anything above 70% cocoa is usually vegan , just check the ingredients for no milk
Pinch of salt
Pinch of chilli flakes (optional)
Place a small pan over a medium-low heat, half-fill with boiling water, then place a medium heatproof bowl on top, making sure the base doesn’t touch the surface of the water. Break in the chocolate, then allow to melt, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, line a medium bowl with a clean tea towel. Add the tofu, bunch up the tea towel and squeeze out the excess moisture into the bowl.
Add the tofu to a food processor with the remaining ingredients and 1 good pinch of sea salt, then blitz for 1 to 2 minutes, or until smooth.
Add the melted chocolate and pulse until silky and combined.
Divide the mixture between little bowls / espresso cups and grate leftover chocolate on top for garnish
