The chocolate mousse can be made through Step 3 and refrigerated for up to 1 day.
If Valrhona is not available, choose another brand that contains a minimum of 50 percent cocoa, such as Lindt's extra-bitter chocolate. The additional cocoa makes desserts taste as chocolatey as they look.
Practically unkown outside of France, Banyuls is one of the few wines that are strong and sweet enough to stand up to chocolate.
