Chestnutella (Chestnut chocolate spread)



0 portion(s)

Chestnut Puree

  • 100 g chestnuts
  • 25 g raw sugar
  • 20 g water
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Chocolate Spread

  • 100 g milk or dark chocolate broken into pieces, depending on how sweet you want it
  • 30 g Cacao or cocoa powder, if using milk chocolate the cacao gives a richer chocolate flavour

  • 100 g full cream milk

Recipe's preparation

    Chestnut puree
  1. Roast Chestnuts


    Cut an 'X' into the flat side of each chestnut shell.

    Place chestnuts in a single layer on a sheet of baking paper and roast in your oven at 180 degrees for around 15 minutes, (stiring around after 10 minutes) until the shell starts to peel back (the more they are curled back the easier they will be to peel).




    Put peeled chestnuts, sugar and water into the Thermomix bowl and cook at 25 min/100 deg/speed 1.


    Stir in vanilla on 10 sec/speed 1.


    Strain the chestnuts using the TM basket collecting the liquid into a separate bowl. Set liquid aside.


    Mill chestnuts for 30 sec/speed 7 or until a smooth paste.


    Add reserved liquid gradually until the desired puree consistency is reached mixing speed 4.

  2. Chocolate spread
  3. Add chocolate to chestnut puree and mill 10 sec/speed 9.


    Add cocao (or cocoa), butter and milk and heat 6 min/50 deg/speed 3, or until mixture is a smooth consistency.


    Use chestnutella spread once cooled, or place into a jar and refrigerate (should keep 2-3 weeks in the fridge)
