This no-bake chocolate salami recipe (salame de chocolate) from Brazil is very easy. It's named salami because it looks like one. It's a great conversation piece!

Instructions Checklist
  • Soak the raisins in the cognac in a small dish for 10 minutes. Combine the tea biscuits, almonds, and cocoa powder in a large mixing bowl. Pour the cognac and raisins into the mixture along with the butter and condensed milk. Mix well with your hands until a stiff, dark, and moist dough is formed.

  • Roll a double layer of plastic wrap onto a clean work surface and place one third of the dough into the center of it. Shape the dough into a log about 2 to 3 inches in diameter. Place log towards the end of the plastic wrap and start rolling the plastic tightly around the log. Twist the ends of the plastic like a candy wrapper and tuck them under the log. Repeat with remaining dough. Refrigerate overnight.

  • When ready to serve, use a small sieve to sprinkle the outside of the logs with confectioner's sugar, or, if you prefer, sprinkle the confectioner's sugar on a kitchen towel and roll the log on it. Slice with a sharp knife to serve.

This was very good and delicious, but I changed the recipe a little. I was a little confused with 2 cups cocoa that the recipe uses, so I used just one cup and it was perfect. I used Orange coconut cookies recipe from this site to substitute tea biscuits and I utilized all cookies. Then I used just about 1/2- 3/4 cup butter and no more. And I think the mixture was a little sticky even with this amount of butter. I added a little coconut flakes. Be sure to refrigerate the salami completely. Read More

This turned out really good! I followed the directions on the the amounts of Coco powder and butter. A couple things I did different: 1.) I didn't have cognac so a used blackberry brandy, I had on hand.2.) Used crazins (dried cranberries) instead of raisins. 3.) Instead of tea biscuits, I used rice crispies. Also I added some flaked coconut. Tried to keep the amounts that were in the recipe. 4.) I added 1tspn.orange extract. Delicious and decadent! It all firmed up really well. Made these for Christmas gifts. Read More

This is awesome! I followed the directions but used vsop brandy because I could not find an inexpensive cognac I liked. It is soo pretty a real "grown up" chocolatey confection! Very easy to make I highly recommend this recipe! Read More

This is delicious. I was confused with the tea cookie ingredient so I guessed as to what that meant. The cookie I selected wasn't very sweet so I think next time I'll purchase Lorna Dunes. I used brandy instead of cognac as that is what I had. I will make again and probably change up the raisins for another dried fruit etc. Read More
