Recipe: Mirko’s Chocolate Salami

The perfect chocolate dessert

I love chocolate.  I love chocolate cake, chocolate brownies, and chocolate tarts.   So when I met Mirko, an exchange student from Italy who brought me ‘chocolate salami’ I knew it would be good.  Now don’t be alarmed there is no meat in this dessert, it is named chocolate salami because of it’s appearance as it is shaped and packaged like salami.  Chocolate salami is a traditional dessert from Italy.  It is made with chocolate, biscuits, sugar, eggs, and butter.  This dessert is an amazing snack, gift, and holiday dessert.

Mirko’s Chocolate Salami

When Mirko brought over his chocolate salami we were all in awe with how good it was.  Everyone in the family was quickly addicted and begging for the recipe.  But Mirko did us one better, he came over and made it with us showing each step.  Which I did an impromptu video of along the way.  So without further ado here is how to make chocolate salami with Mirko!  (Recipe listed below)
