To begin, start by preparing the crust. Combine the crushed graham crackers or digestive biscuits, melted butter, and sugar in a mixing bowl. Mix until the ingredients are well combined and press the mixture into the bottom of a springform pan. Place the crust in the refrigerator to chill while you prepare the mousse layers.

Next, prepare the chestnut mousse layer. Start by pureeing the roasted chestnuts in a food processor until smooth. In a separate bowl, dissolve the gelatin in warm water and set aside. In a saucepan, heat the sweetened condensed milk until warm and then add the gelatin mixture and vanilla extract. Stir until the gelatin has dissolved completely. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly. In a separate mixing bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream into the chestnut mixture until well combined. Pour the chestnut mousse mixture over the chilled crust in the springform pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Place it back in the refrigerator to set for about an hour.
