What I like about chocolate salami is that it’s a quick no bake dessert which is as tasty as a good chocolate cake. It is one of the easiest desserts I know and I think it is a well known one around the world. Another great thing about this easy chocolate dessert is that it’s so fun to make it just like making truffles and you can show your creativity and surprise your guests with the additional ingredients you add in it. So Snickers Chocolate Salami came out of my creativity.
I hadn’t known that there were numerous versions of chocolate salami around until I decided to make one some time ago. To be honest, I must tell you that I was completely confused about the ingredients.
Chocolate salami mainly contains chocolate, butter and biscuits but it’s inevitable to feel puzzled when you see so many different recipes.
Some recipes call for milk and cocoa powder while some call for melted chocolate. Some use raw yolk, some don’t. Some have sugar, some don’t. I’ve tried several recipes since then and created my own version at last.
I use both melted chocolate and milk&cocoa powder mixture in my chocolate salami. I use yolk, but not raw. I cooked it over boiling water with melted chocolate and butter. Well, I don’t see much difference between this one and the eggless one, it just helps a bit for a nice thickness of the chocolate mixture. You can just leave it out if you don’t want egg in your salami.
Snickers makes any dessert more irresistible! Period. I’m sure you can guess how scrumptious this Snickers Chocolate Salami is. If you haven’t try snickers in such a sweet salami yet, you don’t know the taste of heaven! If you are making it for a party, snickers will help your dessert be a hit!
The coating varies too. Some recipes use powdered sugar while some others use cocoa powder. I prefer unsweetened cocoa powder since the salami is already sweet enough.
It looks like a classic salami, doesn’t it? Just the color is different, so it’s a great surprise for kids too! You should get your kids involved in making this quick no bake snickers chocolate salami!
