Cashew Chocolate Pudding

The "Cashew Chocolate Pudding" (page 474) is by far the richest, most decadent chocolate pudding I've ever had, vegan or otherwise.  It is dangerously delicious, and I say "dangerously" because it would be just too easy to eat the entire batch, alone, in one sitting.  Since the recipe includes one cup of chocolate chips and ½ cup cashews that probably wouldn't be a good idea.  Add to this soymilk, tofu, maple syrup, and vanilla extract, you end up with a creamy pudding that almost has the consistency of a chocolate mousse.  I'm quite certain this dessert would not pass muster with Dr. McDougall, at least not on a regular basis. The solid fat in the chocolate chips are the biggest culprit (from cocoa butter, natural, but not necessarily healthful).  But maybe I can squeeze this in every once in a while, for a very special occasion like a birthday or Valentine's Day.
