Homemade Chestnut Cream

'Creme de marrons' or chestnut cream is my son's favorite treat. And he is not alone. Chestnut cream is the ultimate Christmas comfort food in France and can be spread on (almost) anything. Stirred into yogurt, spread on waffles, banana or used to make the traditional Christmas dessert 'buche de Noel'. You get the picture 😋. So here is how to make your own.
