Have you ever tried Chocolate Salami? Famously looks like salami but tastes like the most decadent chocolate treat on the market and the best party trick to use this April Fool’s Day! A Portuguese and Italian dessert invention made from dark chocolate, pistachio nuts and almonds, white chocolate, orange zest and butter cookies. Some add wine or port but this recipe is alcohol free. Almost chewy in texture and shaped like a salami roll, if you haven’t tried one yet then you’re definitely missing out!

Steps to make Chocolate Salami


Toast nuts


In a large skillet over medium-low heat, toss 1 cup of mixed nuts, like pistachios and almonds, for a few minutes until toasted and slightly browned. Set aside to cool.


Melt chocolate and butter


In a microwave-proof bowl, melt 12 ounces of semisweet chocolate and 6 tablespoons of butter in 20 seconds increments and stirring in between, until completely melted and combined.


Add remaining ingredients


Fold in the toasted nuts, 2 tablespoons of white chocolate pieces, 1 teaspoon of grated orange zest, and ¼ cup of crushed butter cookies to combine evenly through.




Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 1 hour.


Prepare logs


Spread out some plastic wrap over a flat surface and place half of the chocolate in the center in a 7½ x 1½-inch log. Wrap the log with the plastic wrap and roll to smooth it over. Twist the ends to tighten the log. Repeat with the remaining chocolate. Refrigerate for about 1 hour until set and firm.




Remove plastic wrap and roll in powdered sugar to dust. Decorate with kitchen twine.



Slice into ¼-inch pieces to enjoy.

The steps are far too complex for me, I did manage to make it but it looks nothing like a salami stick,LOL.

Fun recipe just like the meatloaf cake, much more instructions for this one,but the end results are worth it.

I had left this in the fridge after cutting a few pieces and my husband actually thought it was salami..he put it on some toast and was very confused after the first bite, super funny thanks so much for sharing this with us.
