Bittersweet Chocolate Mousse a la Orange

On the list of things I never thought I'd say, "This chocolate tofu tastes pretty good!" However, it's true. The chocolate tofu is really quite good.

1/2 cup sugar
7 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier (orange-flavored liqueur)
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Dash of salt
2 (12.3-ounce) packages reduced-fat silken tofu, drained
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3 oranges, peeled and sectioned (or a can of drained mandarin orange sections)

Combine the first 7 ingredients in a blender or food processor; process mixture until smooth.

Place chopped chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until almost melted; stir until smooth. Add chocolate to tofu mixture; process until smooth.

Divide orange sections evenly among 6 bowls or parfait glasses; top each serving with 1/2 cup mousse. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.
