Chocolate Peanut Butter Silken Pie

What you need: 

Filling:
4 squares of unsweetened bakers chocolate
2/3 cup peanut butter
16-18oz silken tofu
1 cup vegan sugar
4-6 tablespoon soy milk
pie crust (see below for pastry crust recipe) or a vegan graham cracker crust is nice as well
Pastry crust:
1 cup flour
1/3 cup shortening
3 tablespoon water

What you do: 

Mix 1 cup flour with a pinch or two of salt. Cut in 1/3 cup vegetable shortening using a fork or other fancy device. Add, one by one, up to 3 tablespoon water, dispersing the water as evenly as possible. Err on the side of less water~you will get a flakier crust. Roll out the dough onto waxed paper or plastic wrap. Place into a pie dish and form those fluted edges if you want. Poke holes in the dough with a fork and bake until slightly golden, about 5-10 min at 425 deg F.
Filling:
Melt the chocolate and blend with the tofu, peanut butter, and vegan sugar adding soy milk to the desired texture (I've found some silken tofus to be more silken than others). Vary the vegan sugar to taste. Pour into the baked pie crust and refridgerate.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

i just finished making this and i cant wait until desert!

i was inspired by ppk no bake black bottom peanut butter silk pie so i made a few changes. i melted chocolate chips over the stove with 2 tablespoons chocolate almond milk. then in the blender i blended 12 oz. silken firm tofu with 2 tablespoons chocolate almond milk, 2 teaspoons of vanilla, peanut butter, and 2 tablespoons red mills cornstarch. i poured half of the tofu mixture into a bowl to reserve. then i added the melted chocolate to the blender with the remaining tofu peanut butter mix and blended until well mixed. then i poured the it into an already made (vegan!) oreo pie crust. i then added the lefterover plain tofu peanut butter mix in and swirled the two mixtures around with a spatula. voila! i'm going to top it with sliced banana and maybe a drizzle of melted chocolate chips to finish it off!

what an incredible easy and delicious dessert!

Oh I forgot to say, I actually didnt add any sugar to this because the chocolate I used was semi-sweet. So it all evened out :)

I made this for thanksgiving :) my omni mom loved it, and the rest of the family were all shocked to hear it had tofu in it, but it sure didnt stop them from devouring it :) it was sooo creamy and rich. I made it with a homemade graham cracker crust, and I'm making a second one tonight with gluten-free graham crackers to bring into work tomorrow for my boss (who is a celiac)  :D Thanks for the great & simple recipe! It was my first time trying one of these tofu pies. Yumm!!

This pie is so delicious!!  I ate the entire pie by myself (in 4 days).  I will make it for my non tofu eating friends and I watch their faces when I tell them it is vegan! ;D

Thanks for the tip!  I actually went to another store to buy the chips and found the vegan squares.  Oh my goodness .... very good and very rich.  Everyone, kids and adults, loved it.  Will make this again.  Put shaved chocolate on top and it looked so pretty.  Great recipe.

Sands, just use chocolate chips. I found that Ghiradelli semi sweets are non dairy, and in the regular grocery. I think store brand chips are often dairy free as well. To melt them, put them in the microwave for 10 second increments. Stir each 10 seconds. Don't try to melt all at once or they will burn. Easier than the double boiler method, I think!

Help!  I'd love to make this for Thanksgiving but I can't find vegan chocolate squares.  Has anyone tried a vegan substitute?  The Bakers chocolate I found had milk products in the ingredients. :-\

I'd also like to note that I used a 12 oz box of tofu (not 16-18 oz).  The 12 oz was more than enough to fill up the pie shell, any more would be too much (for the shells I use, anyways)
