Ingredients

Chestnut Confit Mousse
1 vanilla bean
1/2 cup chestnut spread with vanilla (available from Kalustyan’s)
1/2 cup crème fraîche
1 cup heavy cream

Garnish: 8 glace chestnuts, gold leaf, and chocolate shavings

Instructions

The day before, split vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape the inside with a small knife. In a bowl, combine the scraped vanilla bean contents with the chestnut spread and mix well until smooth and soft.

Whip crème fraîche and heavy cream in a bowl until soft peaks form. Gently fold in chestnut mixture until completely incorporated. Cover and chill overnight.
