Mont Blanc with chestnut cream

The Mont Blanc dessert is made of a light meringue, chestnut cream and whipped cream: it just melts in the mouth! To make this recipe, you will need a reusable piping bag and a tip. We have chosen a vermicelli tip but you can of course choose another one to vary the shape of your dessert.
