Chocolate and chestnuts

Postby OneMoreCheekyOne » March 8th, 2018, 9:29 am

Morning,

Has anyone got a dessert/cake/biscuit idea using these two ingredients please?

I've got about 2/3rds of a vac pac bag of chestnuts to use up this week and I fancy using them in something sweet.

TIA x

I make this nearly every Christmas as a standby. It is always popular.

The HF-W recipe looks great. A friend brought me back a 500 g can of creamed chestnut from France and I haven't got round to working out what to do with it yet!

I've made the HF-W one many times. Always successful, except when I tried a dairy-free version with oil instead of butter.
