Homemade Chocolate 'Salami' for Christmas

So the festive holidays officially begin for me and I am glad of it.  

A few years back, I remembered that Johanna's from Green Gourmet Giraffe had made a very impressive Chocolate Salami at home. I admired it and at the time.  It had not dawned on me then to make it for my husband who has a thing about chocolate, but this year I was reminded of it, when I saw some supermarkets selling Chocolate Salami as part of the Christmas range.  I should also highlight that last year, I also saw a very similar recipe, but this time it was showcased as Chocolate Haggis by Foodie Quine for Burns Night. 
Anyway, this year I was determined to make a Chocolate Salami for my husband from scratch.  Here is it, I am also linking this to The Christmas Link Up hosted by Claire Justine.
I must admit, although it was easy to make, parts of it were a little fiddly, especially wrapping the clingfilm around melted chocolate and then removing the clingfilm from the set chocolate, after all you don't want to be chewing into plastic.  Then came tying the string around the chocolate salami. By the way, I did not want to pay £6 pounds for butchers string simply for aesthetic reasons and ended up using some red embroidery thread for effect instead.  

Here it a photograph of the sliced chocolate salami.

Let me end this blog post and Wish all my loyal readers, old and new a Merry Christmas.

  2. A happy Christmas and New Year to you. I am intrigued as I have never heard of chocolate salami though I've never had anything bad that had chocolate as its main ingredient.

  3. Merry Christmas Shaheen - your chocolate salami looks great - I should have made it this year when it was cooler leading up to christmas - though today was 33 C which was a bit much. Hope you enjoy cutting into the salami and telling people who know you are veg that you are eating salami at home :-)
