My husband and I are big fans of chestnuts. We love them in every season and I always buy a jar of chestnut puree to have it ready to use every time we fancy it. This super easy and fast dessert, it needs only a few ingredients and can be use on its own or to add it in lots of preparations like cakes, pancakes, etc.


  • 50 g chestnut puree
  • 100 ml whipping cream
  • 1 tsp powdered (icing) sugar
  • 1 tsp rum
  • 1 tsp finely grated orange zest
  • 1 tbsp grated bitter chocolate
  • *1 tsp milk based caramel (dulce de leche, manjar)


  1. Whip the cream to firm peaks. Add the sugar and the puree and whip for a few seconds until is all mix together.
  2. *If you have dulce de leche use it to add an extra softness and sweetness to the dessert.
  3. Add the rum and the orange zest, mix carefully with a spatula. Serve with some grated chocolate and some more orange zest. Enjoy!
