I bought a jar of this the last time I was in Tescos, and now I can't find a recipe to use it in -- any suggestions?

I was hoping for something gooey and chocolatey :D

i think it's used to make a dessert called mont blanc with meringues and cream i think - i've seen it in a nigella book maybe - possibly How To Be a Domestic Goddess or failing that Feast, but I think it's a (kind of) well known dessert, not one of her inventions.

:shock: please could you look up the recipe sometime (or if someone else on here has it) -- that sounds just right; I have too many eggs at the moment and was vaguely thinking about making meringues :idea:

We don't put any meringue in this pudding and it's very commonly made. I don't use recipe, just dilute chestnut puree with rich cream till very vaguely brown and sweeten, all that done to taste, refrigerate and when solid-ish grate. (into small bowls), cover with sweetened whipped cream.(Equal amounts almost)

If really feeling devilish, drizzle with rum flavoured chocolate sauce and sprinkle with grated/chopped nuts.

Whatever you do, make sure the goods are not salted as usually they are here for stuffing! 8)

I have just checked the jar - it is 60% sugar :shock: (that's my kind of food!!)

So it's definately for desserts and not for stuffing.
