  4. Pour mix into crust-lined pan. Bake 45 min. Turn off heat and let cake cold 1 hour in oven with door slightly ajar.
  5. Refrigerateat least 6 hrs.
  6. To make topping: Heat 3 ounces chocolate in top of double boiler over barely simmering water. Stir till smooth. Spread in 1/8- to 1 16 inch-thick layer on baking sheet. Chill till just hard, about 10 min. Cut into 8 to 10 decorative shapes. Chill till very hard. Whip cream till peaks form.
  7. Transfer to pastry bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe cream in decorative border around edge of cake. Garnish with chocolate shapes. Sprinkle center of cake with powdered sugar and serve.
  8. Note: To toast nuts, heat in a dry skillet over medium heat till they start to brown. Stir occasionally. Be careful not to scorch them.
  9. Note: Colleen Duncan said she used more than the 6 Tbsp. of grnd coffee beans called for to make an even stronger distillation of coffee. Then, for the resulting 1/3 c. brewed coffee called for, she used half of the strong coffee, half Kahlua.
