A little bit like a chocolate tiffin and a little bit like a fridge cake, this chocolate salami is made with ingredients that you probably already have in the kitchen. Slice it up and serve it with some custard or double cream.
- 400g rich tea biscuits, crushed into rough crumbs and chunks
- 150g blanched almonds, chopped
- 90g sultanas
- 220g cocoa powder
- 375g melted butter
- 1 x 400g tin condensed milk
- 4 tbsp. cognac
Soak the sultanas in 2 tbsp. cognac for 10 minutes.
In a bowl, combine the cocoa powder, butter, condensed milk and the rest of the cognac. Fold in the biscuits, almonds and sultanas (the dough will be very stiff), then turn out onto three large sheets of clingfilm all laid on top of each other.
Shape into a log shape, fold over the cling and then shape into a rough cylinder. Use the cling to smooth the log and then twist and keep twisting until it turns into a firm log. Chill for 10 hours.
