Chocolate Salami

Serving Size: Makes 1 log; enough for several chocoholics


  • 1/4 C. (55 g) butter, melted
  • 12 oz./3 1/2-4 C. (350 g) chocolate cookies crushed (such as Nabisco Famous Wafers)
  • 3/4 C. (60 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Several spoonfuls of sugar
  • Approximately 1/2 C. liquids: strong coffee, milk, Bailey’s Irish Cream (or other liquor of choice)
  • Some almonds, graham crackers or Petit Beurre-type cookies, finely chopped


  1. Crush chocolate cookies and place in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add unsweetened cocoa and sugar; stir to combine.
  3. Pour in melted butter; add the liquids of your choice a bit at a time. Stir after each addition and add just enough to bind the dry ingredients together.
  4. Add finely chopped almonds or cookie pieces and stir gently so the pieces are distributed evenly.
  5. Place spoonfuls of the mixture down the center of a piece of plastic wrap and shape into a log. Wrap the plastic wrap around the log; twist the ends closed and roll it back and forth if necessary to give it a uniform shape.
  6. Chill for at least 4 hours; then cut into 1/4-inch (.5 cm) slices and serve. The slices will be dark brown with little specks of white almonds, giving the appearance of salami.
