It’s quite a famous dessert that has nothing to do with salami . A traditional Portuguese and Italian dessert this “salami” is made from dark chocolate, broken cookies, butter, and eggs.
Utensils: mixer, bowl, rectangular bread form, wax paper
Serves 6-8; prep. time 30 minutes ( 2hrs refrigerating time)
300 grams simple biscuits or cookies (broken)
150 grams butter (at room temperature)
100 grams sugar
1 tbsp vanilla sugar
200 grams dark chocolate
100 milliliters brown rum (or 80 ml milk and 15 ml rum extract) & 80 grams raisins (optional)
Melt the chocolate using a bain-marie. If you want to use raisins, soak them for a half an hour in rum or in milk mixed with rum extract.
Beat the eggs using a mixer.
Separately, mix the sugar and butter in a large bowl until creamy.
Add in the beaten eggs and incorporate.
Add in the soaked raisins and melted chocolate and stir well. Add the broken cookies and combine until chocolate cream blends well with them.
Pour the mixture on a sheet wax paper and roll it well to form a “salami”. To make it easier, you can use a rectangular bread form, lined with wax paper (see video below).
Refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Unwrap and serve in slices. Enjoy!
