      Didn't make a pie, but used the chestnut part as frosting for my Christmas log instead. Before adding the chocolate, I set aside some of the chestnut-sugar-butter mix, to which I added some icing sugar (for the "cut" part of the log). I reduced the chocolate to 7 oz and added it to the rest of the chestnut mix (used this as the "bark"). Worked great, the only thing is that the chocolate part hardens quite rapidly, so you have to work fast... other than that, it was perfectly decadent!!! Thanks for sharing Marli :)
