Quick Vegan Chocoloate Peanut Butter Pie

INGREDIENTS:

2 packages (12 oz. each) silken SOFT tofu (Mori-Nu is very good)
1/3 cup sugar
8 oz. excellent quality dark chocolate, broken into pieces (Valrhona is good choice)
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 Nutter Butter cookie crust (recipe below)

METHOD:

Melt the chocolate over low heat (or microwave), stirring frequently to ensure the chocolate doesn’t burn. Keep warm.

In food processor, process the tofu and sugar until very smooth and creamy, about 1 minute or so. It will liquefy. Scrape sides down.

Add peanut butter and process another minute, scraping sides carefully.

Add melted chocolate to the peanut butter-tofu mixture and process until smooth and creamy. Immediately pour into pie crust and refrigerate at least 6 hours before serving.
