In this recipe, the pureed chestnuts are delicious mixed with cream, flavored with a hint of rum, and paired with chocolate. If you use canned chestnut puree, which you must do most of the year, be very careful to work it completely smooth before mixing in the mascarpone cheese. Because of the high starch content, the puree is quite firm and will give new meaning to the word lumpy if you fail to do so.
