Chocolate SALAMI

Here is another homemade edible gift idea!  Chocolate Salami is a favorite among young and old {and all the in-betweeners ...} It is also highly priced in store - not really something a person would buy for themselves.

Well, with this recipe, you can make 2 logs - one for yourself and one as a gift !

I have sliced and eaten one of the logs so you can see all the goodies inside and the second log I wrapped as a gift - very Christmassy, don't you think?

If you want to make some to give as gifts, wrap the logs in baking paper first and then add whatever you like.  I packed mine in a double layer of baking paper, twisted the ends, added some ribbon to secure and lastly I added some gold tissue paper with punched-out shapes.  The wrapping possibilities are endless.

Chocolate SALAMI

makes 2 logs

200g Shortbread biscuits, roughly chopped
1/3 cup Dried Cranberries
50g Pecan Nuts, chopped
1/2 can (of a 397g) Sweetened Condensed Milk
80g Dark Chocolate of a good quality
50g Butter

1.) Mix the Shortbread biscuits, Cranberries and Pecan Nuts in a medium bowl.
2.) Heat the Condensed Milk, Dark Chocolate and Butter over low/medium heat until melted.
3.) Pour the Chocolate mixture over the Shortbread mixture - stir to combine well.
4.) Divide the mixture in half  - place each half on a baking sheet and roll up to form a log - chill until firm.

When firm, slice and enjoy or wrap as a gift !

Keep refrigerated.

For a chocolate lover, this is perfect on it's own or you can add a bottle of chocolate syrup/liqueur, chocolate spread or small chocolate truffles.

Bye-bye now,
