Chocolate Salami

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Place hazelnuts onto a baking sheet and transfer to oven. Toast nuts for 10 minutes before transferring them onto a clean dishcloth. Gather them up in the dishcloth and rub them, removing their skins. Grind hazelnuts to a fine consistency.
  2. Grind the walnuts and chocolate to a fine consistency using a hand or nut grinder.
  3. Roughly chop the blanched almonds.
  4. Place all of the ingredients into a medium-sized stainless steel bowl and stir together to combine.
  5. Place the bowl onto the bottom of a double boiler with simmering water. Stir the mixture until the chocolate and icing sugar melt and the warm mixture holds shape when pressed firmly with a spoon.
  6. Place a rectangular piece of parchment paper onto your work surface and sprinkle with icing sugar. Transfer half of the salami dough onto the parchment paper, forming it into a log shape. Wrap the log up tightly in the parchment paper to complete the salami shape. Repeat with the remaining dough. Refrigerate for an hour or more or leave in a cool place to harden.
  7. To serve: Unwrap salami. Roll in additional icing sugar before slicing into ¼-inch rounds. Sprinkle with a tiny pinch of kosher salt before serving.

Chocolate Salami

Let’s return now to our CHOCOLATE SALAMI. I demonstrated how to make this cookie during my recent visit to CHRISTMAS IN NOVEMBER. No surprise really, the cookie garnered great interest and received lots of oohs and aahs for both flavour and presentation.

Here’s why everyone’s falling in love with CHOCOLATE SALAMI!

INGREDIENTS

Chocolate Salami

The ingredient list for this cookie recipe is not complicated and I bet you already have most of the ingredients in your pantry or cupboard ready to go. Two suggestions: use a premium chocolate if you have access to some, and add a titch more of the spices for a more robust flavour profile – you won’t be sorry.

NUTS

Chocolate Salami

I’ve always loved the use of nuts in holiday baking recipes as using them lends distinct flavours, colour and substance. The ground walnuts and hazelnuts help bind the mixture together once the chocolate and icing sugar melts, but almonds are the nut that truly steals this show.

Roughly chopping the blanched almonds leaves them in small yet sizable chunks that fool the eye with the look of salami.

NO BAKE

Chocolate Salami

Although we’re labelling this recipe as a no-bake recipe, there is a brief cook step where we melt the chocolate and icing sugar, plus cooking the egg before rolling the mixture into its distinctive log shape.

LOG ROLL

Chocolate Salami

Dusting the cookie mixture in icing sugar before rolling it into log shapes is easy to accomplish. You can also roll it a second time right before you slice and serve it for added presentation.

Chocolate Salami

One thing I’m now considering essential is to sprinkle each slice with kosher salt. There’s nothing more perfect than that salty and sweet mix on something this fabulous!

CHOCOLATE SALAMI will spark conversation and then make your holiday cookie platter the talk of the town – enjoy!
