Notes

For the chocolate sprinkles, I use a vegetable peeler and grate my chocolate, then break up any larger pieces a little between my fingers.
I prefer to use whipping cream, so if you don't know how to make that, just pour 2 cups of whipping cream into a bowl and beat it until you get stiff peaks.  Use 1/2 in Layer 2 and then the remainder whipped cream, add 1/4 cup of powdered sugar to it and beat it in and spread it on the top layer, Layer 4.
