Ingredients

  • 2 cups coarsely crushed sweet biscuits
  • 1⅓ cups coarsely crushed Amaretti
  • cup toasted almonds
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup icing (powdered) sugar (sifted)
  • cup marsala
  • 140 grams butter (melted)
  • 100 grams dark chocolate (melted)

Instructions

  • Place the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Mix together the Marsala, melted butter and melted chocolate.
  • Stir wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
  • Prepare two lengths of doubled plastic wrap.
  • Divide the mixture between the two sheets of plastic wrap and spread out into a line. Roll it up tightly into a log pressing to form the shape. Twist the end of the plastic to seal. Place on a baking tray (so they keep their shape) and refrigerate for a few hours. After 30 minutes, check if they are still keeping the shape. If not press into shape and retighten the twists on the ends.
  • Refrigerate overnight.
  • Or freeze if you are keeping it for some time.
  • When you are ready to serve. Remove the wrapping. You can dust the salamis lightly with sifted icing (powdered) sugar to resemble the skin of the salami.
  • Slice and serve. Keep it chilled to retain the shape.
