Il orange chocolate salami it's one of my favorite desserts: it's easy, cheap, and practically everyone likes it. Also, in a historical period like this where expensive energy seems to make us go through a bad winter, the fact that it is without cookinga is a further plus: the oven is a very expensive appliance! After trying several I have developed this foolproof recipe which I hope you will like. I'm a bit of a mess to give the salami its characteristic shape… but its taste is so good that no one has ever complained! 😄

This recipe of orange chocolate salami is perfect for children as it does not contain alcohol ... but even more so it is perfect for us wine lovers because we can combine it, without conditioning, with all those sweet and fortified wines that go well with the chocolate. 😍

Chocolate salami, step 1

Boil water (half full of water) in a saucepan, then set a bowl the size of the saucepan down so that it is covered and the water doesn't splash out. Add the butter and chocolate.

Put the biscuits in a bowl and break them with your hands, leaving a few larger pieces (it must look like the lard of fat from the salami).

Cut the candied orange into cubes about 1-2 cm per side without worrying about being precise and add it to the bowl of cookies.

Chocolate salami, step 6

Squeeze an orange and add it a little at a time to the mixture of chocolate, butter, eggs and sugar. Then add it to the cookies and chopped candied orange and mix gently with a spoon. You don't need to mix a lot: all the cookies need to be well blended. Do not use whips or anything else to mix so as not to break the cookies further.

Chocolate salami, step 7

Cut a piece of parchment paper and pour the mixture into the central strip, leaving 4/5 cm of space at the edges to roll up the parchment paper and give the classic salami shape. Let it rest in the freezer for 1 hour or 4 hours in the refrigerator ... depending on how much you want to eat it!

Chocolate salami, step 8

Sprinkle with powdered sugar or unsweetened cocoa powder (or both) to give the classic salami appearance that has a light exterior. I only use cocoa because I am not a lover of powdered sugar! Cut into slices about half a centimeter thick.

Orange chocolate salami can be kept for 2 days in the refrigerator or for 1 month in the freezer… but in my house it never lasted even 24 hours! I recommend you try it with a passito red wine such as a Recioto della Valpolicella DOCG.
