Fresh orange sections are topped with a thick chocolate mousse for a unique presentation. The mild bitterness of orange rind and bittersweet chocolate temper the sweetness of this easy dish. You can prepare the dessert up to a day ahead.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine the first 7 ingredients in a blender or food processor; process mixture until smooth.

Step 2

Place chopped chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until almost melted; stir until smooth. Add chocolate to tofu mixture; process until smooth.

Step 3

Divide orange sections evenly among 6 bowls or parfait glasses; top each serving with 1/2 cup mousse. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.

This really is delicious. I had no problems with lumps after chilling. Fantastic with raspberries.

This is the simplest, yet amazing recipe for chocolate mousse. I don't usually bother with the orange. I am however thinking that fresh raspberries will be awesome. But there is no need to gild this lily.

This is Very good, but also Very rich. was smooth before I put it in the fridge, and when I pulled it out the mousse had become a bit lumpy. So, MORAL OF THE STORY: dont refridgerate it? hahah it was so smooth before I refridgerated it, so I suggest to just let it stand for the suggested hour in room temperature. Otherwise a great recipe, I used some kind of organic brand of silken tofu, bittersweet ghiradelli chocolate, and hersheys unsweetened cocoa. Enjoy!

I love it, made it twice, with and without the orange zest. It was gritty with the orange zest but smooth without. I changed the brand of tofu too, but they were very similar so I don't think this affected the grittiness. Triple sec works too! Really draining the tofu well (put it in a fine strainer) also made the second batch thicken better.
