Must-Try Christmas Pie

Chocolate Chestnut Pie


We all know about chestnuts roasting on an open fire, but what the song doesn’t tell us is how those roasted chestnuts can then be turned into a Christmas pie that rivals Thanksgiving’s pumpkin pie.  Chocolate and roasted chestnut Christmas pie is over-the-top decadent, has the consistency of cheesecake,  a mild nutty flavor, and a fudge brownie finish.  Although your Christmas guests have never tried this Christmas pie flavor, the roasted chestnuts make this Christmas pie fit right in with the turkey and some mistletoe.

Concept Fruits Whole Roasted French Chestnuts - Peeled, Ready-to-eat, Steamed - Product of France - 14.2 Ounces - 2 Jars, Pack of Two

You can take the time to roast your own chestnuts, but I’ll admit  I cheated.  I used this jar of roasted chestnuts.  If you can find them locally, I’d go that route.  Roasted chestnuts can be expensive to purchase online.
