Ingredients

Mousse:
Wine-Soaked Cherries:
Whipped Cream:

Directions

Melt the chocolate over a double boiler. While chocolate is melting, separate the eggs. Beat the yolks, using a whisk in a medium bowl, with 2 tablespoons of the sugar and the vanilla until they become light yellow and creamy.

Temper the yolks with a few tablespoons of melted chocolate before adding the rest of the chocolate, stirring until well combined. Set aside.

Beat the whites in a medium bowl with remaining tablespoon of sugar until stiff peaks form. Set aside.

In a large, cold bowl, add the cream and beat until stiff peaks form. Gently fold both the egg whites and cream into the chocolate-egg mixture. Spoon the mousse into individual serving bowls or 1 large bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Cherries: Combine the wine, sugar and lemon zest in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and add the cherries. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until slightly reduced, about 10 minutes. Set aside and let cool.

In a small bowl add the cream, sugar and vanilla. Whip until the cream forms soft peaks or to desired consistency.

To serve, top the mousse with cherries and whipped cream.
