Chocolate Chestnut Mousse is the favorite among kids. This dessert often finds a place on my table and is quite easier to prepare. Just check out the recipe of the rich and yummy Chocolate Chestnut Mousse listed here.
  Canned pureed chestnuts 2 Pound (Two 1 Pound Can, If Only Whole Chestnuts Are Available These Should First Be Simmered, Then Pureed With Blender Or Processor)
  Unsalted butter/Margarine 1⁄2 Pound, soft
  Semi-sweet chocolate morsels 1 1⁄3 Cup (21.33 tbs), melted
  Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
  Granulated sugar 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs), melted
  Rum 3 Tablespoon
  Port wine 3 Tablespoon
  Strong coffee 3 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Pirouette cookies 10 1⁄2 Ounce (1 1/2 Boxes Of Arnold Variety)
  Whipped cream 3 Cup (48 tbs)

Pour chestnuts into large mixing bowl.
Beat in the butter or margarine, melted chocolate and sugar syrup.
Line bottom of cylindrical dish with waxed paper or foil.
Turn a 1-inch layer of chestnuts mixture into dish, being careful not to touch sides.
Now line the sides of the dish with upright cookies, to make a columnar effect.
The mixture will hold cookies in place.
Fill the dish with remaining mixture, cover with waxed paper and chill for six hours, or overnight.
At serving time, run a knife between cookies and dish, reverse on to serving platter.
Top with whipped cream, and dot the cream with a few chocolate morsels.
