Chocolate Salami

Chocolate Salami is another classic Portuguese recipe. I wouldn't say that it is historically old, but while growing up in Portugal you would find it most kids parties. You can also find it supermarkets and coffee shops, but nothing beats the homemade version. It requires no cooking and you can assemble everything in less than half an hour - or even faster if you have a food processor. This recipe is from Pantagruel. Make sure to use sweetened chocolate powder, because otherwise it will be too bitter.


  • 200g (7oz) sweetened cocoa powder
  • 200g (a little less than 1 cup) granulated sugar
  • 200g (7oz) sweet butter biscuits (Marie biscuit or Petit Beurre)
  • 125g (1 stick) butter
  • 4 eggs yolks 
  • butter q.s.


The recipe asked for Petit Beurre by Leibniz-Keks, but I couldn't find it her in Denmark. I used Marie biscuits instead.

Start by crushing the biscuits into small pieces with a food processor or just smash the biscuits inside a kitchen towel with the help of a rolling pin.

Melt the butter.

While the butter melts, mix the chocolate powder and the sugar in a bowl.

Add the melted butter, the biscuits and the egg yolks.

Mix well.

Lay out a piece of aluminum foil and place the mixture on top of it. Form a cylinder as best as you can.

Cover the chocolate salami with the aluminum foil and place it on the fridge for at least 2 hours.

And slice the salami in 2 cm (~1in) slices.
