Alton Brown’s Dairy-Free Chocolate Pie

Added to Recipes on Tue 12/20/2011


Makes 8 servings

13 oz semisweet chocolate chips   

1/3 cup coffee liqueur  

1 tsp vanilla extract     

1 lb silken tofu   

1 tbsp honey      

1 (9-in) prepared chocolate wafer crust (store-bought is fine)



Place enough water in the bottom of a 4-quart saucepan to come 1 inch up the sides. Bring to a simmer over medium heat.


Place the chocolate chips and liqueur in a medium metal mixing bowl, set over the simmering water, and stir with a rubber or silicone spatula until melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.


Combine the tofu, chocolate mixture, and honey in a blender or food processor and spin until smooth (about 1 minute).


Pour the filling into the crust and refrigerate for 2 hours, or until the filling sets firm.
