This decadent chocolate dessert is sure to impress your friends, and not just because of its fancy name. Cremeux is French for creamy, and this dessert is superbly rich and creamy. It will hold shape perfectly in a ring mold, it makes an excellent layer in a cake, or it's simply delicious set in a small cup!
