This is a Viennese confection made famous by the movie "Amadeus."  It
consists of fresh chestnuts, boiled in water for 5 minutes or baked on a
cookie sheet at 450F for 5 min, after cutting an X on the stem end, then
cooled, peeled and coated liberally with buttercream candy mix (1 bag 10x
sugar, brandy or a flavored extract, enough butter to make a stiff paste
and food coloring) and allowed to harden.  So, no, it's not an appropriate
recipe for this list.
