Chocolate Salami

5.0
4 ratings
Our chocolate salami is a whimsical dessert that has nothing to do with its pork-based namesake - but it sure is delicious! Instead of meat, we use chocolate and butter. Instead of fat and spices, we have walnuts, shortbread cookies, and a splash of brandy or cognac - not optional. Perfect for vegetarians and meat lovers alike.

Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Use your hands to break down the Shortbread Cookies (2 3/4 cups) into coarse pieces. Add to a large bowl.
step 2
Then, break down the Roasted Walnuts (1 3/4 cups) and make them the same size as the cookies. Add to the same bowl and combine with cookies. Set aside.
step 3
In a saucepan over medium heat, add Butter (1 cup), Granulated Sugar (1 cup), Salt (1 pinch), Milk (2 Tbsp), Cognac (2 Tbsp), and Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (4 Tbsp). Bring to a simmer and allow the sugar to dissolve entirely, then take off the heat and let cool to the touch.
step 4
Once cooled, beat in the Farmhouse Eggs® Large Brown Egg (1). Use a whisk to mix until combined.
step 5
Pour the wet mixture into the bowl of the cookie/walnut mix. Mix thoroughly. Place in the fridge for 5 minutes.
step 6
Line a clean surface with plastic wrap and pour out half of the mixture. Carefully wrap the mixture up into a salami shape, twist the ends gently, then layer more plastic around the middle. Gently roll the salami along the surface while holding the ends to tighten. Do the same with the second half.
step 7
Chill in the fridge until solid (3-4 hours). You can also let it sit in the freezer and move it to the fridge after.
step 8
Optionally, dust the outside with Powdered Confectioners Sugar (to taste) to make it less sticky and give it that “salami” look.
step 9
Slice and serve. Store extra in the fridge and slice just before serving.
