Confectioners' sugar

Rum to thin

Pinch instant espresso coffee


1/2 cup heavy cream

Bittersweet chocolate


  1. In a food processor puree the chestnuts with enough confectioners' sugar to make it taste sweet. Add enough rum to make it the puree loose enough to fold into whipped cream; season with some instant espresso and vanilla. Chill until serving time.

  3. Right before serving fold chestnut puree and cream together and transfer to serving glasses; garnish with shavings of bittersweet chocolate.
