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

  • 1Combine cherries and Grand Marnier-microwave in small owl until hot, apx. 30 seconds. Let stand 15 min or until cool and softened
  • 2Reserve 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.
  • 3Microwave 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
  • 4Divide 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)
  • 5When 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
