💭 Thoughts and ideas
It is super easy to prepare ahead, so perfect for your dinner parties. If you want to make it more festive, add some fresh berries and some fresh mint on top.
You can of course adjust the sweetness by adding more agave, or maple syrup. I used agave in this recipe, but maple will go beautiful as well. Just make sure you blend it for a good few minutes as this will really help it's texture.
🍷 Wine pairing
Wine pairing; Chocolate and wine... Yummy!! Think Sweet, sweeter, sweetest. Chocolate needs to be matched with sweet wines.
A vintage port, a Madeira, or a sweet sherry works magic. If you happen to be in France, get a really good banyuls from the Southern Roussillon area. The reflecting Mediterranean sun makes for beautiful sweet wines there.
Go ahead, and try this easy, quick and light recipe. And you will be amazed about the magic of silken tofu. Please add @haricoco1 to your Instagram posts, Because I LOVE to see your vegan chocolate mousse desserts, adding your own inspiration. ENJOY!
