What Is Chocolate Salami And How To Make It At Home?


Chocolate Salami may conjure up a whole host of images in your mind. But take it from us, once you try making this at home there will be no going back. There is no meat in this salami but, instead, it has chocolate as its base and makes a great accompaniment to your coffee or tea. It’s also a complete dessert by itself and even makes a great addition to an ice cream sundae. This sweet dessert roll has its origins in Italian and Portuguese cuisine and is primarily made of easy ingredients that can be found in your pantry. The name ‘salami’ comes from its physical appearance. Just like meat salami, it is rolled up into a tight cylinder and served sliced into discs. The chocolate salami is a rich chocolatey brown in colour with flecks of biscuits or nuts that resemble the white flecks in meat salami.
