From My Kitchen: Dessert for New Year’s Eve |Mont Blanc

It’s the end of the year, and tradition calls for that special dessert for New Year’s Eve: Mont Blanc, a dessert made mainly from chestnuts and formed into a mountain shape, thus the name.I already know many of you are staying in or are hosting parties at home, for that I decided to include the link to this recipe to enable you to get the ingredients on time. Remember this dessert should be consumed within one day.

Mont blanc is a French dessert basically with a soft layer of cake with a pillowy mound of chestnut cream, all topped with strands of sweet nutty chestnut puree. It’s creamy, sweet and earthy with 3 different textures in each bite. So for this dessert we will have the genoise (the cake base), the chestnut puree which can also be store-bought , and the chestnut cream laid on top of the cake.

A recipe I cam across and which found really easy is by No Recipes. Just click this link and you will get all the details and instructions to make it just in time for New Year’s!

Bon Apetit and Happy New Year !
