Chocolate Salami

So for those of you not in the know this is an easy thing to put together. Some broken digestives for my European friends or Graham crackers for my North American friends along with some broken up shortbread is mixed into a melted pot of dark chocolate and peanut butter. Then some additions chucked in for good measure, salted peanuts and some peanut butter M&M’s for a little more of a PB kick in these peanut butter chocolate salami cookies. Then roll it into a salami shape, wrapped in cling film / plastic wrap and popped into the fridge for a couple of hours or until set.


Unwrap it and roll it in a little icing / powdered sugar to give it a real salami look. Roll it up in a little baking parchment and hey presto you have your peanut butter chocolate salami cookies all ready to go and be gifted to a friend.

Add In’s

I have kept my add in’s pretty basic for these peanut butter chocolate salami cookies. I don’t think they need anything else, but you can jig them around to suit your needs. All shortbread could be used if digestives / graham crackers are either hard to come by or are just not liked. Reese’s Pieces candies could be used if the PB M&M ones are not easy to find.  Cashews, almonds or pistachios could replace the peanuts. Try to use salted nuts as the salt goes well with the chocolate.
