Combine chocolate and heavy cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 2 minutes and stir. Heat for an additional 1-2 minutes or until chocolate is fully melted and can be whisked into the cream. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl to make sure all the chocolate is melted.

Assemble the Cake
With a serrated knife level the cake. Place one layer on the serving plate and spread 1/2 of the chocolate mousse over the cake. Sprinkle with Scor bits. Place second layer of cake on top of Scor bits.

Pour ganache over the top, allowing it to drip down the sides. Sprinkle with additional Scor bits and refrigerate until ready to serve.
