How to Make Italian Chestnut Dessert, Mom


  1. Melt chocolate in double boiler. Cream butter until fluffy, stir in vanilla and chestnut cream. Beat in melted chocolate until absolutely smooth. Line bottom of 8" square pan with waxed paper. Press mixture into pan, chill. Unmold and remove wax paper. Decorate with cool whip and chocolate curls.
  2. NOTE: Mom said chestnut cream can be purchased at Marshall Field's or gourmet food shops. I have had trouble finding it, so when I went to Jungle Jims, they informed me that chestnut puree is the same thing as chestnut cream, and sell it in the French section.
