Bake for 15 minutes. Remove parchment and pie weights and return to oven and bake for another 3 minutes. Allow pastry to cool completely. Repeat with second pastry sheet.

Working in batches, pour chocolate mixture over whipped cream and gently fold until fully combined. Chill in refrigerator until ready to use.
5. Fill pastry shells with whipped cream mixture. Draw lines over the mousse with the red pastry gel horizontally. Using a toothpick gently pull red coloring in the opposite direction through whipped cream creating a marble effect.
