Chocolate salame

Course Dessert
Cuisine Italian
Prep Time 10 minutes
Servings 8 people

Ingredients

  • 100 g di biscuits, like digestives or similar
  • 100 g of butter, at room temperature
  • 150 g of sugar
  • 100 g of good quality unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • Icing sugar
  • Butcher's twine

Instructions

  • Break the biscuits coarsely with your hands: do not use a blender, as we need some texture here, the biscuits will look like the fat in the salame.
  • Cream butter and sugar, then add the cocoa powder. Once the cocoa powder has been incorporated, add the eggs, one at a time.
  • Scrape the sticky dough on a working surface and mix in the chopped biscuits.
  • With a spatula, or with wet hands, place the dough on a piece of cling film, wrap it and try to give it a cylindrical shape.
  • Stash in the fridge for a few hours, until cold and solid.
  • Remove the salame from the fridge and roll it in icing sugar, then tie it with butcher’s twine as if it were a real salame.
  • Serve it sliced. Keep in the fridge for a few days.
