VARIATION: For high-standing mousse, prepare collars for 2 parfait glasses. Tear strip of foil of sufficient length to go around top of each glass. Fold foil into fourths; butter lightly. Place buttered side in; tape to sides of glasses. Spoon mousse into glasses. (Mousse should come over top of glasses.) After mousse has set, carefully remove foil collar.
