What up FoodTubers we’re going to make the most incredible
beautiful chocolate pots this would be
brilliant for a romantic interlude yes
or frankly anyone with loads of friends
or kids but they’re also
vegan-friendly. The mystery ingredient
tofu
yes yes yes I know. Shush. Shh.
Tofu. No, no stop, listen
No, stop, stop, listen.
Okay this is a vegan chocolate dish
and this is fantastic because
actually we got the benefits of having
less saturated fat so it’s
healthier but you can really really taste the quality of the chocolate
so this is how we roll guys we’re starting
off with really good
quality dark chocolate eighty-five
percent cocoa solids
two packs of these, 200 grams, give it a
slap
and lets open up our chocolate
and that just sprinkle in, bowl
over some water now this will slowly melt
into the bowl just give it a little stir
every 30 seconds or something like that
but don’t rush it
then the tofu this is the point where
cream would normally go into some kinda
chocolate mousse or some
sort of chocolate pot. Just put into a clean
tea towel, has to be clean
So there’s one pack and two packs. So there’s 700g of tofu
in that clean teatowel. Grab up the corners and
bring it together and twist it and get
rid of the residual
excess moisture
go into a food processor. Throw in all of
the tofu
just like that. Just the zest of one lime
Try and use one of these microplanes, or fine graters
Don’t use the coarse ones, it’s got to be
just the green skin
here. Give it a whack. So go in with one
tablespoon of
beautiful dark rum. Then I’m going to go in with 2 teaspoons
of vanilla bean paste, you can use
extract
but this paste, I just love the flavour
it’s really really good
a little pinch of salt. Back over here
we’ve got our chocolate looking good
there’s a few little bits in there so
we’ll come back to that in a second. Now
a 160 grams of maple syrup which is
basically
all of this and then another little
secret ingredient
chilli. It’s a bit fashionable I know, but I don’t want to add much to it, like a good pinch
So I’m just going to add that chilli into there. I’m gonna take my chocolate off
the heat now. You can see this is
completely melted look at that
beautiful so let this cool down. I’m going to whizz this up for about two minutes to get
super silky smooth then I’ll start adding the chocolate
okay now it’s super smooth, now we can start adding the chocolate
Okay so let’ have a little look in here. I mean look at that I mean
it is chocolate heaven
you know its totally convincing I know
you weren’t convinced by the tofu at
the beginning
but let me just go over the logic just
one last time
Look I’m all into cream it’s delicious
its rich you can put air bubbles into it
but if it’s the really good chocolate which
we want to celebrate
you know having it simpler and cleaner
you can really taste it
Let’s have a little taste
Really really good so it’s time to think
about serving it over here
I’ve got some glasses, little expresso
cups are super cute
this is enough for about 8 little
chocolate pots
so I’m just gonna edge it out and this is a
chocolate pot so we don’t want
loads if you wanna put into something
and
shake it flat you can, but I quite like seeing
the ripples because you see just how
silky it is then
three of my favourite things on the
planet, maple syrup, dark rum
and chocolate we can have real fun with
this. You can take
a little cantucci biscuit you know with
little pistachios in it and it smash up beautiful. You could take
an amaretti biscuits and smash that up,
take your favorite
hobnob or biscuit or whatever
gets you going
and bash that up, even some nice nuts
So anything that’s going to compliment the lovely chocolate
experience so I’m just gonna take some
nice little gingernuts, just bash these up
to a nice fine powder, something crunchy
is going to be amazing and just put a
spoon like this
you could just shave a bit of extra
chocolate on the top
you can also just get an everyday grater, and do exactly the same
pistachios so I would take these nuts
now
and just put them on top of one
So there you go guys beautiful vegan chocolate pots

What would you do with this? What would
you do if you were making this to kind of make
funked up
