Preparation

How to prepare Chocolate salami

To make the chocolate salami, first chop the chocolate with a knife 1. Melt it in a bain-marie 2 and, once it has completely melted, let it cool.

 

In the meantime, place the chopped butter in a bowl at room temperature (it must still be malleable) and whip it with the sugar using a hand mixer (4-5). Flavor with rum 6.

 

Pour the lightly beaten eggs one at a time, continuing to beat with electric whisks 7 until the mixture is clear and frothy 8. Now pour in the melted chocolate at room temperature 9.

 

Continue stirring until the chocolate is well mixed 10. Now take the cookies and coarsely crumble them with your hands into a bowl 11, then add them to the chocolate 12,

 

and stir to mix together 13. Transfer the dough to a sheet of baking paper 14, use the spatula to distribute the dough in a sausage shape 15.

 

Lift one of the two ends of the sheet, bring it towards the center and roll the salami (16-17) until it is completely wrapped with baking paper 18.

 

Fold the two side paper flaps 19 so that the salami is tightly closed. Place the salami on a tray and 20 leave it in the fridge to harden overnight. Once the chocolate salami has hardened, you can tie it with twine and sprinkle with powdered sugar 21

 

Storage

Chocolate salami can be kept closed in an airtight container and placed in the fridge for 2-3 days at most. Alternatively, it can be frozen for up to a month.

 

Tips

It is not recommended to replace chocolate with cocoa powder, as it does not have the same consistency and the result will not be optimal. As an alternative to rum, you can use another liqueur to your liking, and for a non-alcoholic version you can use the same amount of orange juice.
