With baking being a huge risk for me, chocolate salami is one of my safest choices. And it never fails 🙂 Maybe because it doesn’t involve any cooking 🙂
This dessert is probably the one that reminds me the most of my childhood. It was always on the table for our birthday parties, Christmas parties and any other occasion that needed a fast and delicious dessert. And because my mum was always trying to avoid the kitchen, this was such an easy solution. And it also a dessert that you can make in a larger quantity as it lasts very well in the fridge for a few days. The main problem would be to resist to a piece every so often 🙂
There’s quite a few variations of this sweet as you can add all sorts of nuts or liquors to it. I think it’s all a matter of taste or of what you have available at that moment. Our traditional version involves almonds and Portuguese grappa. But then you can change as you please.
I’m showing you the most plain version which only includes a small amount of alcohol and even that you can skip. This is the way my mum taught me but any other versions are up to your imagination 🙂
