Crispy fried tofu recipe (Vegan)

I forget, occasionally, that cooking tofu is a thing that people seem to struggle with. A lot of new vegans/vegetarians seem to dislike tofu, which I admittedly don't understand, as I think tofu tastes delicious even with nothing on it. But here's what I do to make it taste even better! Some people would disagree with me here, but I think freezing and then defrosting tofu makes the texture a zillion times better.

Make vegan hot cocoa, sugar free! And it’s super easy! Hot Chocolate

This "recipe" is so simple I feel like it shouldn't even be a post, but here goes! For an embarrassing amount of years, delicious hot cocoa was beyond my grasp. As a huge fan of chocolate, I found this difficult to deal with. I can't have any pre-made mixes (I've heard there are vegan ones. Whatever!) because they all have milk in them. I've made hot cocoa from unsweetened powder with limited success - the cocoa usually clumps together, which is more frustration than I'm willing to put up with for a measly cup of cocoa. Then I discovered unsweetened chocolate...
