Re: my favorite pie ever

I can't wait to make this.

Do you find, though, that if you mix melted chocolate to tofu that it gets kind of grainy sometimes instead of blending smoothly? Do you know how to prevent that? Should the tofu be warmed up?

Re: my favorite pie ever

i haven't found it to be a problem. *shrug* i use trader joe's chocolate chips, though i doubt it makes a difference.
