Cocoa Mocha Cheesecake

What you need: 

7 ounces vegan cream cheese (I use Follow your Heart or Tofutti)
3/4 pound firm tofu
3/4 (1.4 ounce) package vegan chocolate pudding mix (dry)
2 tablespoons vegan chocolate syrup (I used Santa Cruz Organic)
1 1/2 tablespoons instant coffee
1 vegan chocolate cookie/graham cracker crust

What you do: 

1. Blend the vegan cream cheese, tofu, pudding mix, syrup and coffee in a food processor or blender until smooth and velvety.
2. Pour into chocolate cookie/graham cracker crust and let chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours or longer.
To finish, I drizzled more chocolate syrup on individual slices, scrumptious! Next time I'll drizzle with raspberry sauce and fresh raspberries for a tangy fresh twist. I think they'd marry nicely. I also froze what was left of this (3 pieces) and enjoyed a nondairy frozen dessert the next day. I hope you enjoy it too!
Source of recipe: This recipe was inspired by Spike936's pink lemonade cheesecake, adjusted to accommodate my love for chocolate. Since I didn't have enough of the ingredients, I had to develop my own recipe. Spike936's pink lemonade cheesecake: http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=27632.0

Do you use firm silken tofu, or regular firm tofu? I'd love to make this.

regular firm or it would have been specified most likely

I finally made this, but I used Chocolate Fudge instant pudding instead of just Chocolate and didn't use any instant coffee so it wasn't "Mocha." But it was DELICIOUS! Very nice  ;)b

yeah  - some of the flavors are, but not all... also many of the store brands are vegan in flavors that jell-o isnt.  same goes for store brand graham crusts - they're cheaper too!
