Italian-inspired Marroni al Liquore, or Chestnuts in Spirits, is two gifts in one: spoon the chestnuts over ice cream and enjoy the liqueur as an after-dinner drink, over ice cream or in Marroni al Liquore Coffee.

In wide saucepan, bring sugar, water, allspice, cloves, bay leaves and vanilla bean to boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved. Stir in chestnuts; reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.

Stir in brandy and bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Skim off any foam. Discard allspice, cloves, bay leaves and vanilla bean.

Using slotted spoon, divide chestnuts among six 1-cup (250 mL) canning jars. Pour syrup over top. Seal and let stand in cool dark place for 2 weeks before using. (Make-ahead: Store for up to 2 months.)
