  • 1 cup couscous
  • 2 ½ cups water
  • 1 ½ cups sucanat or unrefined sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp Red Ape Cinnamon®
  • ¼ cup cocoa
  • 1 10 oz. package chocolate chips
  • 10 oz. firm tofu
  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup


  • In a saucepan, combine water, couscous, sucanat, cinnamon, and cocoa. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally and cook until liquid is absorbed and mixture is thickened (15 to 20 minutes). Add vanilla and stir. Spread mixture into a 9-inch spring form pan.
  • In a separate saucepan, melt chocolate chips slowly over low heat, stirring constantly. Transfer to a blender, add tofu and maple syrup and blend until smooth. Pour mixture over the couscous mixture and chill for at least an hour.
  • For a variation, you can spread toasted pecans on top of the couscous mixture before pouring the chocolate layer. You can also top the dessert with chocolate chips, strawberries, raspberries, or dried coconut.
  • This is crazy delicious
