Fold whip into the chocolate-yolk mixture. Add liqueur. Repeat for the light mousse.

Pour approximately 3-4 tablespoons (depends on the size of the cups) of the dark mousse into a clear cup and put it in the freezer, standing on a slant to create a diagonal look and freeze for a ½ hour.

Remove from freezer and let the cups stand straight. Pour 3 to 4 tablespoons of light mousse and freeze again for ½ hour.
