    Chocolate mousse
    180 gm dark chocolate (54% cocoa solids), coarsely chopped
    3 eggs, at room temperature, separated
    tsp each of ground cinnamon, ground allspice and chilli powder
    225 ml thickened cream, lightly whipped
    Hazelnut praline
    100 gm hazelnuts, roasted and skins removed
    100 gm caster sugar

    1 Melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water, turn off heat and cool, add yolks and stir to combine, then add spices. Add cream and fold through to combine. In a separate bowl, beat eggwhites until soft peaks form, then add to chocolate mixture and fold to combine. The mousse should be smooth and even in colour. Spoon into six cup-capacity moulds and refrigerate for 3 hours or until set.
    2 For hazelnut praline, place hazelnuts on a baking paper-lined oven tray. Combine sugar and 2 tbsp water in a small saucepan and bring to the boil over medium heat for 5-10 minutes or until light caramel, then pour over hazelnuts and cool completely. Coarsely chop.
    3 To serve, scatter mousse with praline and serve immediately.
