Jacques Torres Chocolate Mouse to Make in Advance?

So I am making this recipe for Thanksgiving Dessert inside chocolate cups...
Anyone know how far in advance i can make the mousse? The recipe is below:

* makes 6-8 servings
* 1 quart heavy or whipping cream
* 14 ounces bittersweet or DARK chocolate, melted
DirectionsWarm/Melt Dark Chocolate to 120 degrees. Whip the cream to soft peaks and add about 1/3 into chocolate. Fold gently with a rubber spatula until mostly incorporated. Mix the remaining chocolate into the whipped cream. Mix only until combined, as you will deflate the cream if you overmix. Place the mousse in a largepastry bag and pipe into decorative serving cups.
