Chocolate Salami

This recipe has a tremendous presentation: fun, creative and delicious. Kids will love making and eating chocolate salami. This is a traditional dessert/snack served in Portugal and Brazil.

Chocolate Salami
Servings: 20 portions

12 ounces (30 grams) dark chocolate (70%, in pieces)
1/4 cup unsalted butter
2 Tbsp rolled oat flakes
1 cup crushed vanilla whole wheat cookies
1/2 cup (125 ml) finely chopped Brazil nuts or almonds
3 ounces (85 grams) white baking chocolate, chopped

In a double boiler, melt the dark chocolate and butter together over medium heat. Remove from heat once melted and let cool. Stir in the oats, the crumbled cookies and the nuts. Finally, stir in the white chocolate.

Spread the mixture out on a large piece of wax paper. Shape the mass into a roll about 12 inches (30 cm) long, using the wax paper to help form a sausage-shaped piece. Once the roll is formed inside the wax paper, fold the ends of the wax paper tightly, and place the roll in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours to chill thoroughly.

When ready to serve, remove from the refrigerator, unwrap the roll and slice into thick slices. Let rest for approximately 15 minutes to warm slightly, then serve.
