349g (12 oz)firm silken tofu
130g (4 ½ oz)dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids)finely chopped
Melt the chocolate, either in short bursts in the microwave, stirring well in between each one; or in a heat-proof bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water (don't let the base of the bowl touch the water).
Pour the melted chocolate into a blender and add the silken tofu, cocoa powder, maple syrup, orange extract, orange juice and a pinch of salt.
Blend until very smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary.
Taste and add more maple syrup, cocoa powder or orange extract as needed.
Divide the mixture between 4 glasses or bowls and refrigerate until set, about 4 hours.
