A salame made of chocolate!

 

The other night our friend surprised us with a chocolate salame.

It’s not as weird as it sounds. A “salame di cioccolato” is a common Italian dessert, and no meat involved.

(*Note: In English it’s referred to as a “chocolate salami.” For some reason, Italian words in English are always changed into their plural form. Like “panini.” It’s annoying when someone orders a “panini” in the USA, it’s PANINO).

Yes, I kept a picture of a 5-year-old receipt because I’m obsessive like that.

 

Chocolate salame is made with sweet biscuits, chocolate, butter, eggs, and a little bit of rum. The original recipe calls for dark chocolate, but you can make variations with either white or milk chocolate. The ingredients are rolled and packaged into a salame shape, hence the name. It is even served like a real salame, cut up into round slices with visible specks of biscuit bits instead of fat. Very amusing!

They are the perfect dessert for chocolate lovers. They are soft and chewy, with the biscuit pieces adding a nice little crunch.

    There are just somethings that I love and chocolate is close to the top of the list. It is a bit strange to eat chocolate salami, because the eyes say meat.. meat …meat and the taste buds cry chocolateeeeee.

    I find the best solution is to eat it with your eyes closed.

      You should be more afraid of how much butter is in it 😀 I just read that some recipes include walnuts, almonds or pistachios – perfection!

    I leave Mrs Sensible to worry over small technicalities such as my butter, wine ice or cream consumption. She tells me when my limit has been reached and I suddenly suffer from temporary deafness. Probably brought on by too much wine..
