      Low Carb Decadent Chocolate Mousse Cake

      This cake is a great treat for the holidays and for us Choc-O-holics! 
      It’s a fudge like cake with a chocolate mousse on top. 
      With a cake like this who needs to cheat during the holidays.

      2 tablespoons unsalted butter
      3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
      1/2 cup blanched hazelnuts or almonds
      8 tablespoons splenda
      3 oz bittersweet chocolate
      1/2 cup sour cream
      2 egg yolks
      1 tablespoon Frangelico or Amaretto liquer (optional)
      1 teaspoon vanilla extract
      1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
      5 egg whites, at room temperature
      1/2 teaspoon salt

      Heat oven to 350 degrees. Generously coat an 8 or 9 inch spring form pan with 2 teaspoons of the butter and dust with 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder (don't tap out the excess; leave it in the pan)
      Finely grind the nuts with 1 tablespoon of the splenda.
      In the top of a double boiler over barely simmering water, melt the chocolate and remaining 4 teaspoons of butter, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Remove from heat.
      Place the chocolate mixture in a large bowl. Stir in the nut mixture, sour cream, egg yolks, liquor, vanilla extract, cinnamon, 5 tablespoons of the remaining splenda and the remaining 2 tablespoons cocoa powder until well blended.
      In another large bowl, with an electric mixer on high speed, beat the egg whites and salt until foamy. Gradually beat in the remaining 2 tablespoons splenda until the whites hold stiff peaks when the beaters are lifted. Fold a quarter of the beaten whites into the chocolate mixture, then fold the remaining whites.  Spoon into prepared pan; smooth the top.
      Bake 30 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs.
      Cool on a wire rack until warm. The cake will fall dramatically. Loosen the edges of the cake with a knife and remove the pan sides before serving.
