In a saucepan, combine nuts, sugar and water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 25-35 minutes until the majority of the liquid is evaporated. Remove from heat and add the vanilla. Strain the chestnut, reserving the sugar syrup and transfer to a food processor and blend until smooth. Add syrup slowly until desired consistency is obtained. Allow to cool before refrigerating.
