PREHEAT oven to 325° F. Grease bottom of 9-inch springform pan. Line bottom with parchment or wax paper. Grease paper.
PLACE morsels, butter, water and coffee granules in medium, heavy-duty saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until melted and smooth. Stir in cocoa and granulated sugar until smooth. Remove from heat.

Over Load of Chocolate
Heavenly chocolate, Heavy and it usses lots of eggs (8). But is just out of this world for a very special occasion. Loved it and have made it several times.
