    Leslie in Texas's Note:

    This is more like an elegant fudge than a mousse, but it's sure to "WOW!" your dinner guests! The Grand Marnier sauce is also good over just about everything. From a January 1984 issue of Bon Appetit in the R.S.V.P. Letters to the Editor section. The recipe was requested from D'Imperio's restaurant in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
