Chocolate Mousse Cake recipe

Here's the recipe for those of you who wanted it. I got it off of cooks.com, so I can't take credit for creating it or anything, but it sure tasted good. Enjoy!

1 pkg. chocolate cake mix

MOUSSE TOPPING:
1 c. sugar
4 tbsp cornstarch
2 pkg unflavored gelatin
3 tbsp. cocoa
3 c. milk
1 tub whipped topping
1 c. miniature chocolate chips
1/2 c. chopped nuts (I didn't add nuts)

Prepare cake mix according to directions on package. Bake and cool.

Prepare Mousse: Mix sugar, cornstarch, gelatin, and cocoa. Stir in milk slowly until well mixed. Cook over medium heat until thickened and mixture comes to a full boil. Cool. When cold, beat well with mixer until fluffy.

Fold in whipped topping, then nuts and chips. Spread over cooled cake and refrigerate. Garnish with more chopped nuts and small chocolate chips, if desired.

Is this the same recipe? As Hershey's cocoa and Jeanie's?
