Intense, heavenly chocolate is all you'll think about when you taste this dessert, though it's packed with all the good things found in tofu. Make sure the tofu is gossamer-smooth before adding the chocolate mixture.

1 12.3-ounce package reduced-fat
     silken tofu (1-1/2 cups)
3 ounces good-quality bittersweet
     chocolate (not unsweetened),
      finely chopped
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup boiling water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest
2/3 cup confectioners' sugar
2/3 cup chocolate wafer crumbs (3 ounces) (see Note)

Nutritional Note:
Many commercial cookies and wafers contain partially hydrogenated oil, a source of trans-fatty acids. Fortunately, brands made without these oils, such as Newman's Own Organics and Mi-Del, are every bit as tasty. Look for them in the natural foods section of large supermarkets.

1. purée tofu in a food processor, scraping down the sides as needed, until completely smooth.

2. Combine chocolate and cocoa in a medium bowl. Add boiling water and stir with a wooden spoon until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth. Stir in vanilla and orange zest. Mix in confectioners' sugar, a little at a time, until smooth. Add the chocolate mixture to the processor; purée until smooth and well blended, scraping down the sides as needed.

[To make wafer crumbs: Place wafers in a ziplock plastic bag, seal and crush with a rolling pin. Alternatively, pulse wafers in a food processor.]

3. Spoon about 2 teaspoons chocolate crumbs into each of 5 parfait glasses or dessert dishes. Add about 1/4 cup mousse, then layer with another 2 teaspoons crumbs. Top with another 1/4 cup mousse and finish with a sprinkling of crumbs. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
