Impress your friends and family with this delicious vegan chocolate salami during a small gathering or as a gift. We always feel proud whenever people enjoy the food we make.

Chocolate salami is not overly sweet. It can be a tasty treat, snack, or after-meal dessert.

What’s with the chocolate salami?

When we hear salami, we always think of some round, thinly sliced, processed meat. But this time, you’ll be surprised that there’s no meat in this yummy treat. Not even eggs!

But there is that dark chocolate. Ooo! I love dark chocolate. We all know those that are 70% and higher in cocoa are healthy. They are supposed to be highly nutritious, rich in antioxidants, good for the heart, have anti-inflammatory properties, improve blood sugar levels, boost the immune system, are great for brain function, good for the guts, and help to protect the skin from damage. Whether or not that’s true, I have no idea, but if it was: Wow! And if not: Who cares – it’s YUMMY! LOL!

Dark chocolates and cocoas are my things. Uh, don’t be confused. They both came from cacao. They are just processed differently.

For real, I am all about that chocolate life. I make lots of hot cocoa bombs, like these brownie hot cocoa bombs or hot cocoa macarons. Yummy!

So, making chocolate salami is a no-brainer.

How to make chocolate salami

Making chocolate salami is quite easy. It’s basically putting all the ingredients together. The only one that needs heat is the dark chocolate…it has to be melted. And that’s just ridiculously simple.

You’ll also need a sheet of parchment paper. And NO! You will not bake the chocolate salami. You’ll make a roll using parchment paper. Just be sure to use PARCHMENT paper. Not foil, not wax paper…only parchment paper. Seriously – everything else sticks.

ingredients

Ingredients to Make Chocolate Salami

  • 2 cups (200g) Dark Chocolate, grated
  • 1 1/2 cups (180 g) Vegan Biscoff Cookies, crushed 
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml or  2 fl. oz) Soy milk (or coconut milk is fine too)
  • 3 tablespoons (40 ml or 1.35 fl oz) Vegetable oil 
  • 1 teaspoon Instant Coffee Powder
  • Pinch of Salt (optional)

Instructions to Make Chocolate Salami

Start with 1-1/2 cups (180 grams of your favorite cookies (you can use any type you like I just like biscoff cookies)

You can break the cookies into a bowl, using your hands, or pour them onto half of a dry cloth, then cover the cookies with the other half of the cloth, and crush them using a rolling pin. Once they are crushed into small pieces, set them aside. (If you want to use a blender or food processor, be careful not to process the cookies too long, or the cookies will become a powder.)

Instructions

Melt  2 cups of grated dark chocolate over low heat using a double boiler. Stir frequently to prevent the chocolate from burning on the bottom.

Once all the chocolate has melted, remove it from the heat and add 1/4 cup of soy milk (or any vegetable milk you like), add 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil, 1 teaspoon of instant coffee powder, and a pinch of salt (optional). Mix well to combine the ingredients.

Mix quickly, pour everything onto a sheet of baking paper. Lifting the side of the baking paper, roll the mixture back and forth to make a log shape. Roll the mixture inside the baking paper and fold over the ends of the paper. Place the wrapped log into the freezer and let it rest for about 3 hours.

Once the mixture has cooled enough to hold its shape, take it out of the freezer, and remove the baking paper. You can roll it in powdered sugar or crushed nuts, if you like. Serve the chocolate salami in slices, just like a real salami.

NOTES:

If you want to make your dessert even richer and tastier, you can add chopped hazelnuts or candied fruit, by taking out 1/2 cup of cookies and replacing it with your favorite nuts or candied fruit.

STORAGE: 

The chocolate salami can be stored in the refrigerator for 5-6 days, closed in an airtight container or you can store it in the freezer up to one month.
