1 pkg. chocolate chips (9-12 oz.) (Read ingredients to ensure you are buying a vegan type – no dairy/whey/etc. Whole Foods 365 dark chocolate chips are good as are Enjoy Life brand. You can also use peanut butter chips to replace all or part of the chocolate)
Justina's Notes: Adding the maple syrup to the chocolate mixture makes the chocolate mixture very thick and difficult to stir. Continue stirring to smooth it out somewhat. I have tried adding the maple syrup to the tofu mixture in the food processor, so as to avoid this thickening, but do not recommend it, as it is detrimental to the taste of the pie. Remember to blend each stage until it is completely smooth, or the pie will likely have small pieces of unblended ingredients (such as the tofu), and that will be strange!
