Salami! Chocolate! Chocolate salami!
I fell in love with this recipe as soon as I saw it. It’s just so different and quite stunning really.
I now have this fantasy of slathering two slices of shortbread with english clotted cream, then layering my chocolate salami between them and packing this sandwich for my lunch. I could tote my sandwich down to the river in my lunch bag, where I’d enjoy it with a hot cup of coffee and a book. Anyone want to join me? I’ll bring the sandwiches, you bring dessert.
This chocolate salami recipe, a truffle in disguise, can take any kind of add-ins you’d like to use – I’d just keep some kind of crushed cookie in there for texture. The original recipe calls for sliced almonds and chopped walnuts with the cookies. I’m looking forward to trying this all kinds of different ways – maybe next time with coconut, macadamia nuts, lime zest, and some dried pineapple for a tropical twist.
