Peanut praline
150g peanuts

Place the peanuts on a baking tray and bake at 150°C for 15 minutes.

Whisk the egg whites with the 15g caster sugar. Sift in the almond powder and icing sugar. Stir gently. Spread on a baking sheet, sprinkle with chopped peanuts and bake at 160°C for 12 to 15 minutes. Cut out circles of dacquoise the size of your moulds. Cover with peanut praline and place in the freezer.

Fill the @silikomart cylinder mould with 6 cavities of vanilla mousse. Place the dacquoise biscuit, praline side in. Place in the freezer for at least 3 hours.

Unmould your dessert, place the creamy filling on top. Place chopped peanuts all around. On top, I placed some homemade chouchous (praline peanuts) and a gold leaf. Place in the fridge while defrosting.
