Chocolate Tofu Pudding Pots

I've had this Chocolate Tofu Pudding recipe on weelicious for a long time, but when I sat down to come up with Halloween recipes, I couldn't resist adapting this one slightly to be a special holiday party treat. My husband and I both have fond memories of growing up eating Bill Cosby's favorite dessert_ Jell-O brand chocolate pudding. It was delicious, but full of sugar, sodium coloring and preservatives.

We wanted our kid's to form their own chocolate pudding memories, we just wanted to offer them something more natural and healthy. That's partly what inspired me to come up with this recipe. The best part is that you can get your little ones involved with every step. They can help put all of the ingredients into the blender, fill the pots with the delicious, rich chocolate pudding and then, make them Halloween ready by adding the "dirt", "bugs", "worms" and any other fun, creepy, and edible things you find. Let your kids improvise and make their dessert as spooky and sweet as they want before goblin it all up! This year, have a delicious (and healthy) HalloWEEn!

Chocolate Tofu Pudding Pots (Serves 4)

Prep Time: 0 mins Cook Time: 0 mins

egg free

nut free

dairy free

Ingredients

  • 1 14 Oz Package Soft Silken Tofu (I like House Foods soft silken or Mori-Nu firm silken)
  • 1/3 Cup Pure Cocoa Powder
  • 1/3 Cup Agave Nectar (feel free to use a little more if you want it sweeter)
  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • 24 Chocolate Wafers (I like using Famous Chocolate Wafers)
  • Gummy Worms (I know, it’s candy. If you think of a healthier “worm” substitute, go for it. Or, you can leave them out altogether.)
  • 4 Small Clay Flower Pots

Preparation

1. Place the first 4 ingredients in a food processor and blend to combine.
2. Scrape down the sides of the food processor and blend again to make sure everything is incorporated.
3. Place 4 whole chocolate wafers in the bottom of the clay pots so none of the pudding goes through the hole at the bottom of the pots.
4. Divide the chocolate tofu pudding between the 4 pots.
5. Place the remaining 20 wafers in a ziploc bag and using a rolling pin, crush into small pieces resembling dirt.
6. Sprinkle the crushed wafers on top of the pots and place the gummy worms in the pots.
7. Serve.

    I love chocolate tofu pudding, and so does my two year old...what a cute idea. Thanks for sharing a healthy spin on a traditional (but not very good for you) favorite!

    So adorable, delicious-looking, and I'll bet any kid would love permission to eat dirt! Awesome recipe!

    I made this with 1/3 cup of pure unsweetened cocoa and the pudding had an extremely intense chocolate flavor, almost like we were eating the cocoa straight from the can, am I using the wrong type of cocoa powder?

      Did you add any sweetener?

      I had the same issue. Followed the pudding steps just as the recipe says and while I \"cleaning\" the bowl I thought it tasted like cocoa powder and not chocolate pudding. I added a little more agave but i don't think it helped. Does it need time in the refrigerator for the taste to develop? Oh well, guess I'll find out.

    I love this recipe, as I do all your recipes! It's on the healthy side and much cheaper than buying the tofu chocolate mousse at Whole Foods for $4 a cup! HOWEVER, using clay pots (intended for plants) for serving food is not recommended due to lead. Many pottery, especially the glazed pots, have lead in them. Even if the pot does not appear to have a glaze, it could still have some type of coating on the pot that contains lead. I hate to think of us moms unknowingly serving lead to our kiddos, so please put the word out and be careful NOT to use pottery not intended for food! ( :

      What a super idea! I've been getting food maiangzes (between 2 and 5 month) since the mid-1970s. I finally learned to cut out recipes instead of trying to store all those thousands of maiangzes.Anyway, I hope you continue to link up to Weekend Cooking to remind people to follow along with your progress.

      So what did you use instead of a clay pot?

    I made this today and added a very ripe banana. My kids (5,. 7 & 11 months) LOVED it! I'm so glad I found your site through pinterest--lots of great ideas here!

    I have extra firm tofu in the fridge - would this work or would it really not get the right texture? I can run to the store, but thought I'd ask first.

      You can use extra firm, it'll just be a thicker (firmer) pudding when it's finished!
