No quiero aburrirlos con mis historias, pero la cosa es así: el otro día mirando el freezer vi que tenía esta crema de castañas que me regaló mi cuñada, y pensé que ya el Otoño está cerca y vendran las castañas nuevas, así que había que ocupar esta crema y me acordé de esta receta de muchos años que hacemos con mi mamá.
Las castañas son del campo en el sur de mi suegro que justo en unos días más lo vamos a ir a visitar .

Relleno de chocolate para el rollo de castañas
150 grs. de mantequilla
100 grs de azúcar impalpable
100 grs. chocolate en polvo
3 yemas de huevo
Batir la mantequilla con el azúcar suavemente e ir agregando las yemas de a una y revolviendo, finalmente agregar el chocolate en polvo y mezclar bien-.Reservar.
Moje dos manteles de cocina con agua fría y estrújelos bien.
Un paño coloquelo sobre la mesa de cocina y extienda la mezcla de castañas, coloque el otro paño húmedo y usleree con el uslero de amasar.Haga un rectángulo de un alto de 2 cm. retire el paño de arriba y coloque el relleno de chocolate sobre la mezcla de castañas.
Enrolle con cuidado ayudandose del paño húmedo y coloque el rollo en un plato o pyrex extendido y lleve al refrigerador por una hora al menos para que esté consistente al cortarlo.
