  • Place chocolate in a blender carafe.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine milk, instant espresso powder, egg yolks, honey and sea salt and bring to a simmer over low heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes, then pour mixture into blender to melt chocolate. Add silken tofu and blend until smooth.
