Method

Dark Chocolate Cream: Place chocolate in heatproof bowl over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water; heat, stirring occasionally, until half melted. Remove from heat; stir until completely melted. Add milk; stir until smooth.

In separate bowl, whip cream; fold into chocolate mixture. Divide among eight 1-cup (250 mL) martini or wineglasses; smooth tops. Refrigerate until set, about 40 minutes.

White Chocolate Cream: Prepare following directions for dark chocolate cream. Spoon over dark chocolate cream; smooth tops. Refrigerate until set, about 1-1/2 hours.

Milk Chocolate Cream: Prepare following directions for dark chocolate cream. Spoon over white chocolate cream; smooth tops. Refrigerate until set, about 1-1/2 hours. (Make-ahead: Cover glasses with plastic wrap; refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Grand Marnier Sauce: In saucepan, whisk together egg yolks and sugar; whisk in whipping cream. Cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until thick enough to coat back of spoon, about 5 minutes. Strain into bowl. Stir in Grand Marnier; let cool. (Make-ahead: Place plastic wrap directly on surface and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.) Spoon over chocolate in glasses.
