Flourless Bittersweet Chocolate Chili Cake with Salted Caramel Gelato

I wanted to spice up this previous post for our entry into the Scharffen Berger Chocolate Adventure Contest as well as for a dinner party so I took the same recipe but I left out the warm spices of winter and substituted them with dried chilies, that I ground up in a coffee grinder (I keep one just for spices).  In order to cool down the spicy chilies I served this cake with a salted caramel gelato.  It was a hit with all our guests, even the children!
