Step 1

Divide the macaroons among four glasses. Pour over the red wine until the macaroons are just covered, and set aside.

Step 2

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate and butter together in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water and set aside to cool slightly.

Step 3

Whisk the cream in a bowl until stiff peaks form when the whisk is removed. Whisk the cream into the melted chocolate mixture.

Step 4

Whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form when the whisk is removed. Fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture until just combined.

Step 5

Spoon the chocolate mousse into a piping bag and pipe over the red wine-soaked macaroons.

Step 6

Set aside to chill in the fridge for 1-2 hours, or until just set.

Step 7

Grate the white chocolate over the top of the mousse and serve the tuile biscuits alongside.
