  1. Beat the egg whites until stiff with an electric mixer and keep aside.
  2. Whisk the egg yolks and the sugar with an electric mixer until pale. Add the chestnut and vanilla cream and rum. Mix until well combined.
  3. Gently fold in the egg whites into the chestnut mixture with a lifting and rolling motion, so that the mousse remains fluffy.
  4. Put the mousse in serving glasses and decorate it with the lightly beaten sweetened whipped cream, chocolate hearts and marrons glacés.
  5. Like this.
  6. Refrigerate it for at least 3 hours before serving.
