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.
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.
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.
Place the chocolate salami in the fridge for at least 5 hours, or for 2 hours in the freezer, before slicing and serving.
A great variety of biscuits would work well here, from common Rich Tea, digestives or shortbread, to coffee and Nice biscuits. Gluten free biscuits could also be used for a wheat-free treat.
