I attempted to roast some chestnuts. You will be unsurprised to hear that they exploded.

(Yes, I cut the little X into them.)

I think my mom used to make them sometimes (but it was usually so much easier just to buy them from the street vendors--Korean street vendors are delightful). I will email her and ask her what her secret was, although I can't guarantee that I will be able to translate the response. (She emails me in Korean.)

Last week I went to the local Japanese stripmall (sort of a Japantown in a mall) and they were selling hot roast chestnuts from a cart outside. You might check that out sometime if they're seasonal for winter.
