  • 7 oz / 200g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 3 oz / 85g unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup / 70g white sugar
  • 1 large egg plus 1 large egg yolk
  • 6 oz / 170g plain cookies (tea biscuits, digestive cookies), crushed not to small
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons / 30ml dark rum or amaretto liquor
  • 1 cup mixed nuts, toasted and roughly chopped
  1. Mix chocolate and butter in a pot and melt it over another pot of boiling water.
  2. In a bowl, combine vanilla extract, sugar, egg and yolk. Add to the chocolate mixture and mix well. Stirring frequently, continue to cook until sugar has dissolved and the mixture is smooth (about 4-5 minutes). It should be hot to touch. Remove from heat.
  3. Add crushed cookies, rum and chopped nuts to the chocolate mixture and stir with spatula until well combined. Leave to cool and thicken slightly.
  4. Divide the mixture evenly between two sheets of parchment paper. Roll it up to form two logs. Twist the ends tightly and leave in a fridge overnight.
  5. Unwrap the logs and coat with powdered sugar. You can tie them like a real salami with string or just leave it normal. Cut into slices and serve. 
  6. Chocolate Salami can be stored well wrapped in a fridge for up to 1 week or for up to 1 month in a freezer.
