Chocolate and walnut sweet salami

Difficulty: low

Preparation: 20 minutes

Cooling time: 3 hours

Servings for: 8/10 people

This no-bake dessert is made from cocoa and biscuits and derives its name from the shape and sprinkled icing sugar on top, which makes it look even more like its savoury original.
The recipe is egg-free, with the addition of toasted walnuts to make it even more delicious.


  • 200 g dark chocolate • 120 g dry biscuits • 120 g walnuts • 90 g butter icing sugar to taste


Melt the butter and chocolate in a bain-marie and let it cool.

Crumble the dry biscuits coarsely with your hands, and do the same with the toasted walnut kernels.

Put all the ingredients in a bowel and mix everything well.

Lay the mixture on some clear film, giving it the shape of a salami and then wrapping and sealing it well with the film, tightening it as much as possible.

Place it in the freezer for about 3 hours.

Remove the film, sprinkle with icing sugar and roll it up in kitchen twine.

The sweet salami is now ready to be cut into slices and enjoyed.

It can be sliced as soon as it is taken out of the freezer so that you can take as much as needed, then place it straight back in.

If, however, you prefer it softer, you can store it in the fridge for up to 5 days before serving.

It can be prepared well in advance and stored in the freezer for around 20 days, remembering however, that once it has been thawed, it no longer goes in the freezer, but in the fridge, and in this case it will last for 4/5 days in all its goodness.
