- 3 ½ oz sugar
- 3 ½ oz butter
- 3 ½ oz unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3 ½ oz almonds , or hazelnuts
- 7 oz dry biscuits
- 1 egg
Before you begin to make the chocolate salame, remove the butter from the refrigerator and allow it to soften for a couple of minutes.
Meanwhile, crush the dry biscuits by placing them in a dishtowel and pounding them with a meat-pounder, or directly with your hands.
If you want to mix the dough with your hands, when the butter is soft enough, place it in a bowl with the rest of the ingredients and begin mixing.
If you prefer to work with a spoon, begin by working the butter in a bowl until creamy. Then add the sugar, egg and chocolate, one ingredient at a time.
Continue mixing until your dough is smooth, and then add the cookies and peeled almonds.
Roll the dough into a 2-in wide log and wrap it first in plastic wrap, then in aluminum foil.
Place in the freezer for at least 30 minutes so that it hardens.
Then slice the salame and serve.
