I had this at a local italian restaurant-we ordered it with some questioning-and it was fabulous! Then one day I was looking thru my Dec/Jan 2016 issue of Cook's Country magazine and there it was!! The recipe for that luscious dessert ! We love it and love how it looks like a real salami (we love to fool our guests and tell them chocolate salami is for dessert!) and tastes wonderful. It's a Portuguese and Italian tradition and it's base is like a truffle and filled with dried fruit, nuts and crushed cookies. I always use the dry ladyfingers, but any dry, biscuit-like cookie will work as well

How to Make Chocolate Salami

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine cherries and Grand Marnier-microwave in small owl until hot, apx. 30 seconds. Let stand 15 min or until cool and softened
  2. Reserve 1 cup of ladyfingers (that were cut into 1/2" chunks), and process remaining ladyfingers to fine crumbs-you should enter up with apx. 3/4 cup.
  3. Microwave in large bowl the chocolate chips and cream at 50% power until melted and smooth, stirring frequently. Should take apx. 30-60 seconds. Add salt and ladyfinger crumbs and stir to combine. Add pistachios, reserved lady fingers and cherry mixture and stir until thick dough forms
  4. Divide dough in half and place each half on large sheet of plastic wrap. Use plastic to roll each dough into tight 6 inch logs, twisting ends well to secure. Refrigerate logs until firm, 3 hrs (can be stored in refrigerator up to 3 days)
  5. When ready to serve, place confectioners sugar into shallow flat dish. Unwrap logs and roll in sugar until coated, brushing off excess (make it look like a salami!). Cut into 1/2 inch slices. Serve
