Chocolate Salami Without Eggs

The “Salame turco” (Turkish salami), also called “salame al cioccolato” (Chocolate salami), is an Italian recipe, originally from the Southern regions (see ).

It reminds me of my childhood as we used to eat it very often, especially during Christmas time or at kids’ parties.

It looks like a salami, but it is a chocolate cake/dessert! Here is the recipe without eggs (the original contains eggs too) and the ingredients for 6 people:

400 g of dry biscuits
140 g of butter
1 bar of dark chocolate (100 g)
100 g of powdered cocoa
100 g chopped almonds
120 g of sugar

optional: 3 tablespoons of brandy liquor  (or coffee, or none of them)

Break the biscuits into very small pieces, like big crumbs. In the same bowl, add sugar, almonds, cocoa and the butter (the latter slightly melted). Stir all ingredients together with a wooden spoon.
In a bain-marie, melt the chocolate bar and then add it to the compound in the bowl. Mix everything together and add the brandy.

Now lay the compound on oven paper and give it the shape of a salami.

Leave it in the fridge for about 3 hours, then cut it in (not thin) slices and… enjoy! 🙂

Ps. you can add some powdered sugar on it before serving (it will look like the “salami”‘s paper). Great for kids, or for adults at the end of a dinner or together with tea or coffee when you deserve a sweet break!!!!

Here is the one I prepared [view from the top] . Please note that, alas,  I did not give it a salami shape, which is why it looks square ( See the way better Nigella picture at the bottom of the  page… )

Cheerio everybody,

      To be completely honest, in Italy we do it with eggs too, but I wanted to try a lighter version!
      what is the Portuguese name of it?
