I am always asked for this recipe.  When I made the cake for my sons birthday, He would not believe that I made it, and that is must have come from a gourmet bakery. I still love him, in spite of his comment. I filled my cake with Chocolate Mousse.

Instructions:

Dissolve the cocoa powder in the hot water.  In a doubel-boiler (or in microwave) melt the chocolate chips, just until smooth.  Add cocoa mixture fo the melted chocolate chips and stir well to combine.

In a separate bowl, beat the heavy cream and sugar until stiff peaks form.

Add the whipped cream mixture to the melted chocolate and fold in with a spatula until well combined.  Refrigerate until ready to use.  Can be made in 4 - 9 inch round pans. Assemble layers with chocolate mousse, and ice with chocolate buttercream icing.
