    Helpful Tips:
    1. Can use graham crackers or cookies you get from the grocery store and crumble them.
    2. Use what you have in the kitchen!
    3. Coffee draws out the flavor of the chocolate.
    4. If the cake comes out to fluffy, use hands to lightly push down the top to make room for the mousse.
