Well like the name suggests this is nothing like a regular salami. Salami is actually cured, feremented and air-dried meat shaped like a cylinder. Originating from Italy, its now very popular with different varieties across Europe.
Now coming to this elegant creation, its super easy to make with just a handful of ingredients. And due to the similarity in its look to the original salami, we borrowed the name. Well another interesting fact is that this creation is in the family for almost 20 years and has won many prizes in many cooking competitions.
So waste no time and definitely give this a try!!!
Prep Time: 10 mins +Refrigeration time
Marie Biscuits: 1 big pack (about 15-20)
Cocoa Powder: 2 1/2 tablespoons
Sugar: 3/4 cup
Butter: 1 stick
Spiced Rum: 1/4 cup or lil more if you like the kick
Almonds/Walnuts (Finely chopped): 15-20
Powder the marie biscuits and sugar. Add the cocoa powder and chopped almonds. Pour in the melted butter and rum.
Knead well into a smooth dough and make it into a cylinder. Wrap it in cling foil and refrigerate for about 3-4 hours.
When completely firm, slice it into circles and serve cold, either with ice cream or even as an after dessert with a hot cup of coffee..
