Introduction: Portuguese Chocolate Salami

I grew up on this stuff. a no bake easy to make desert. There are probably as many variations as there are cooks, this is just another one, here I am experimenting with Hazelnut chocolate and a little bit of vanilla.

Step 1: Ingredients...

4 oz Melted Butter

4 oz Unsweetened Cocoa

4 oz Powdered chocolate of your choice ( this time I am experimenting with Hazelnut chocolate)

4 Egg Yolks

Vanilla Extract/flavor

One Package (7 oz) of "Maria Cookies"

Other Stuff:

Large bowl


Large wood spoon (not in the picture)

Step 2: Whisk Butter And...

Whisk Butter and Sugar (I like to use brown sugar, white sugar can be used if preferred)

Whisk till you have a creamy mixture.

Add yolks one at a time, mixing well between.

Add chocolate powder, cocoa, port wine and vanilla

Mix well till all chocolate is moist.

Step 3: Crush Cookies...

Crush cookies and mix well in.

Put on foil, shape like a salami, wrap and refrigerate a few hours or overnight for the flavors to meld. Cut slices about 1/2" thick and enjoy.

P.S. try bringing up to room temperature before eating.
