Make Ahead Tip: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 6 months.
Chestnuts, unlike all other nuts, contain very little fat. Chestnut puree makes a deceptively rich-tasting filling for these elegant truffles. Glittery gold food-color “paint” gives the truffles a dramatic look. It and the chestnut puree can be ordered by mail from: La Cuisine, 323 Cameron Street, Alexandria, VA 22314, (800) 521-1176.
Storage smarts: For long-term freezer storage, wrap your food in a layer of plastic wrap followed by a layer of foil. The plastic will help prevent freezer burn while the foil will help keep off-odors from seeping into the food.
