  • Cuisine Type: Italian
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 0 minutes (no-bake)
  • Total Time: 20 minutes + chilling time
  • Cooking Method: No-bake


  • 200g digestive biscuits
  • 150g dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa)
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 100g granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 50g chopped nuts (hazelnuts, almonds, or pistachios)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Cooking Instructions

  1. Crush the biscuits into small pieces but not crumbs; think gravel, not sand.
  2. Melt the dark chocolate and unsalted butter together in a heatproof bowl over simmering water. Stir until smooth.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg and sugar until frothy. Looks like you’re making breakfast, but you’re not.
  4. Pour the melted chocolate and butter into the egg mixture. Stir well.
  5. Add the cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and pinch of salt. Mix vigorously. Consider it your arm workout for the day.
  6. Fold in the crushed biscuits and chopped nuts. Ensure everything is well-coated in delicious chocolate goodness.
  7. Lay out a large piece of cling film. Spoon the mixture onto it in a log shape. Yes, it’s messy. Embrace it.
  8. Roll up the cling film tightly around the mixture to form a cylinder. Twist the ends like a Christmas cracker.
  9. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until the chocolate salami is solid and ready to slice.
  10. When ready to serve, dust the “salami” with powdered sugar and cut into slices. You’ve just reached the pinnacle of dessert making.


  • Alternative Ingredients: Swap digestive biscuits for graham crackers or ginger snaps. Substitute nuts with dried fruits for a chewy twist.
  • Garnishing Options: Dust with powdered sugar for a snowy finish. Drizzle some melted white chocolate for extra pizzazz.
  • Cooking Tips: Ensure the egg mixture isn’t too hot after adding the chocolate, or you’ll have scrambled eggs. Nobody wants that in dessert.
