Mexican Chocolate Tofu Pudding

With the cool and wet weather I have been hankering for some comfort food. One of my all time favourites is chocolate pudding. Today I tried my hand at an 'intriguing' variation on the old standby!

"and it has tofu -- go figure" .

Sounds weird. But, trust me. You won't regret it!
