1pkg silken tofu
1-2 tspmint extract
4chocolate mint girl guide cookies(optional)
Melt the chocolate chips and the soy milk together. Either in a double boiler on the stove top or in the microwave. I prefer the microwave method. It's faster and requires only a glass dish. Set your microwave to medium high heat and cook for 1-2 mins. Be sure to stir every 20-30 secs to make sure the chocolate does not burn and stop as soon as it is all smooth.
In a food processor or blender, add the chocolate, the tofu and the mint extract. Blend until very smooth and creamy. Scrap down the sides of the bowl often, otherwise you will end up with little white grains of tofu in your pudding. These just don't look nice.
Divide into 4 pudding cups and chill for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator. I'm saving mine for dinner. To serve , crumble a cookie on top of each cup.
This is pudding is vegan, if you use vegan, plant-based chocolate. Chocolate mint girl guide cookies are not vegan. You can find other vegan chocolate mint cookies - like Mint Oreos. I used silken tofu for this recipe. The kind that comes in the aseptic self-stable boxes. I used firm, Nu-Mori brand tofu. If you are using regular tofu (they kind that you find in the refrigerator section of the grocery store) choose a silken or soft variety.
