Salame di cioccolato or chocolate 'salami' is a very popular Italian dessert made out of biscuits, cocoa and butter. Loved by kids and adults alike, it's no-cook and fun to make with the children. With the addition of Nutella in this chocolate salami recipe, it's sure to be a hit.


Serves: 6 

  • 200g tea biscuits
  • 40g dark cocoa powder
  • 1 egg
  • 125g butter, melted
  • 4 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate hazelnut spread

Preparation:10min  ›  Extra time:5hours  ›  Ready in:5hours10min 

  1. Break the biscuits into small pieces with your hands. Do not crumble as you would do for a cheesecake, but just break apart into smallish pieces.
  2. Place in a bowl with cocoa powder, egg, melted butter and sugar. Mix all ingredients to get a wet but stiff mixture. Then add the chocolate hazelnut spread and stir well.
  3. Cut a large rectangular piece of baking paper. Transfer the mixture onto the paper and shape it as a log with your hands. Fold the paper and wrap around the log, twisting at each end.
  4. Place the chocolate salami in the fridge for at least 5 hours, or for 2 hours in the freezer, before slicing and serving.
