Chocolate Salami Roll
Contrary to the name Salami, this Chocolate Salami does not contain meat, has no eggs, and no liqueur. I opted for strong brewed coffee, to make it kids friendly.
This is a fast, easy, no-bake, nut, and cookie filled sweet dessert and as the name “salami” only resembles the look of the treat, It’s bitter-sweet, crunchie, sweet, and lovely chocolaty overall covered with lots of confectioners’ sugar.
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Setting and Resting: 5 hours
- Cook Time: 5 minutes
- Total Time: 5 hours 10 minutes
- Yield: 1 1x
- Cuisine: Teatime
- 115g unsalted butter
- 300g dark bittersweet chocolate
- 150g crushed Arrowroot biscuits
- 60g coarsely chopped walnuts
- 40g pine nuts
- 25ml strong brewed coffee, black
- Zest of one 1 large orange, ± 15ml
- Enough confectioners’ / Icing sugar for dusting
- Measure out the butter and chocolate in a large mixing bowl.
- Crush the cookies in smaller pieces, and add all the remaining ingredients, except the icing sugar, and toss to mix.
- Melt the butter and chocolate in the microwave and stir with a metal spoon until the chocolate is totally melted.
- Do not overcook. I prefer to do it for 1-2 minutes, mix and then return it for 3 or 4 x 30-second intervals and continue to stir until you have a smooth consistency.
- This may vary depending on the strength of your microwave.
- Once fully melted and the chocolate and butter fully mixed, add the remaining ingredients (not icing sugar).
- Mix it the chocolate and cookie/nut mixture until the cookies totally covered.
- Leave it in the mixing bowl until the chocolate mixture starts to set.
- This can take 15 minutes or more.
- If you wish to speed up the process, place the mixing bowl in the fridge for 5-10 minutes.
- Use a metal spoon to mix it through at least twice to ensure that it cools down throughout.
- In the meantime, place a 40-45cm long strip of cling wrap or any plastic wrap (lengthwise) on the countertop.
- Now the fun part begins. Once the mixture has set reasonably well (it should NOT be hard or solid), you will scoop out the ‘dough’ and transfer it on the plastic wrap.
- Use the spoon or a spatula to shape the ‘dough’ into a 15-20 cm long cylindrical shape, round and sausage-like in the middle of the wrap.
- Pick up the sides of the plastic and fold it over the chocolate sausage and wrap it tightly around the chocolate. Twist the ends (like a candy wrapper) and continue to keep the mixture in a log shape.
- Place the chocolate sausage in the fridge to set.
- After 10 minutes, take it out, and lightly roll it on the countertop with the palm of your hand to keep and mold it in a nice round sausage form.
- Repeat this once or twice and then leave it to totally set and harden.
- You should leave this for at least 3-4 hours or overnight.
- How to decorate the Chocolate Cookie Log:
- Place an extra-large and long sheet of parchment paper on your countertop.
- Dust it with icing sugar. Unwrap and place the log on the icing sugar parchment paper.
- Sprinkle and dust the Chocolate Cookie Log with more icing sugar to coat it.
- Wrap the log again like candy in the parchment paper and leave it in the fridge until ready to be served.
- How to serve the Chocolate Cookie Log:
- Dust a dark-colored serving platter with icing sugar.
- Unwrap your ‘candy’ and cut with a very sharp and heavy knife in 2 cm thick slices.
- Note: It may crack, and brake should you try to slice it thinner.
- This is delicious, especially with the orange rind.
- I will for sure make this again and intend to add different nuts and maybe even some cake fruit mixture.

Chocolate Salami Roll is very similar to the Hedgehog slices
The dish goes by a variety of names. In German, it’s called Kalter Hund (cold dog), Kalte Schnauze (cold snout), or Kellerkuchen (cellar cake). In some languages, it’s named after its appearances, such as Swedish radiokaka (named for both its resemblance to old-time radios and its ability to be eaten soundlessly so as to not disturb radio broadcasts), Turkish Mozaik Pastası or Greek Mosaico. The Danish kiksekage and Serbo-Croatian keks torta simply mean biscuit cake. The Dutch name Arretjescake comes from a promotional recipe book published by Calvé and is named after its mascot character, while the Norwegian Delfiakake refers to the Delfia deep-frying fat mentioned in this recipe.
The treat is derived from chocolate salami which was invented at the beginning of the twentieth century and which in turn traces its heritage to various kinds of fake sausage confectionery without chocolate from the start of the nineteenth century.
I saw so many variations of the Chocolate Salami Roll and was so intrigued that I had to try this and used this as a guide and added my own little twist to Lynn’s recipe. Thank you for the inspiration.
