Quick grab a box of silken tofu, throw it in the food processer-make it real smooth. Melt some chocolate chips ( about 1/2 C, maybe more) Mix this in with the silken tofu along with some vanilla extract. Instant chocolate mousse. If you're feeling really adventurous, make a raspberry sauce too. Yummy

if you like cookies these cookies take maybe 10 mins to prepare and harden in 15. great with coffee!<br><br><br><br><br><br>
i make chocolate/PB no-bake cookies.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
2 cups (raw)Sugar<br><br>
1/3 cup CoCoa<br><br>
1 stick of vegan margarine (1/2 cup)(earth balance)<br><br>
1/2 cup vanilla rice dream ( i use soymilk)<br><br>
1 Tablespoon Vanilla (or some maple syrup)<br><br>
3 cups Quick Oats ( i use alittle more then 3 cups)<br><br>
1/2 cup natural Peanut Butter with or without nuts.<br><br><br><br>
In a 2-3qt. Saucepan, mix up the Sugar, Cocoa, Margarine, and Rice Dream.<br><br>
Bring it to a boil and once at a boil time it for 3 minutes.<br><br>
(This is really important. If you don't boil it long enough, the cookies won't harden up and you'll just have mush or to long and they will harden to fast in the pan!.)<br><br>
Watch out so it doesn't boil over.<br><br><br><br>
Turn off the heat, then stir in the Vanilla, Peanut Butter, and Oatmeal.<br><br><br><br>
Drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet and leave out on the counter for about 15-20 minutes to harden up.

My favorite fast chocolaty treat is to melt some peanut butter on the stove, mix in equal part chocolate or carob chips, then mix in equal to 1.5 times crunchy cereal such as brown rice crisps. Then freeze until firm....very very quick and soooooo yummy. I think I usually use 3/4 cup peanut butter, 3/4 cup chips + 1 cup cereal or something similar. I never really measure.<br><br>
Have fun with your friends!

An old friend of mine once made a great coconut pudding. I don't have the recipe, but I'm thinking something like 1 can of coconut milk (not low fat), 1/4 or 1/2 cup of sugar and maybe some rice milk cooked in a pan and thickened with cornstarch or agaragar or what-have-you. Cool, sprinkle the top with toasted coconut? I wouldn't try winging it with guests arriving, come to think of it. Just a thought.<br><br>
