christmas chestnut cupcakes

i made these for a christmas eve treat - chestnut cupcakes with a chocolate chestnut icing...and they turned out really good. i made my own chestnut puree from fresh chestnuts and it was delicious, once added and baked the taste was very subtle...not overpoweringly chestnut which was just what i wanted. as i had extra chestnut puree left over i decided to also add it to the icing to use it up and include the delicate chestnut taste in the icing. this also worked nicely and it paired really nicely with the chocolate flavour. i was super pleased with the final result...what a divine treat before christmas day!
