Chocolate-chestnut heaven!

Yesterday, we were in chocolate-chestnut heaven so I am renaming Nigella Lawson's Mont Blanc. *grins* This is an amazing pudding that will leave you scraping the bottom of your dish and wanting more.....

Chocolate-Chestnut heaven
4 blocks (approx. 40gr) of Lindt supreme dark chocolate (I used 90% cocoa)
chestnut puree
200ml whipping cream
2 or 3 small meringue rings

Chop the chocolate and throw into a deep (wine) glass. Top the chocolate with two tablespoons of chestnut puree. Whip the cream and then add the meringue rings crushed mixing well. Layer on top of the chestnut puree. Keep a little of the meringue to dust the top of the cream. Leave in the fridge until you are ready to eat it.

Just look at those yummy layers...enjoy!

Eet smakelijk!

Love you, Mom

Oh gosh, those look absolutely delicious! I wonder if it would work with other types of nut purees? Almond, hazelnut or walnut could be good too.
