How to Make Italian Chocolate Chestnut Torta
My great-grandmother only made this rich, chocolate and chestnut dessert once a year – for Christmas! It was usually served with a little corner cut off so she could taste it before she offered it to the rest of us! And while it’s time consuming – the results are well worth it! Start by making a traditional chestnut puree, then add in chocolate and amaretti to create this mildly sweet but incredibly flavorful Holiday dessert! Mamma D is my very special guest this week as we get ready to celebrate Christmas in the Cucina! Buona Natale!
