Chocolate salami, a recipe for kids

Here is a recipe from my blog for primary school teachers Progetto Ipazia: the Chocolate Salami. It is a very easy recipe that your kids can prepare by themselves, for instance when they invite their friends at home for tea time.


  • 300g Crunchy biscuits, without butter
  • 150g Butter
  • 200g Dark chocolate
  • 2 Eggs
  • 100g Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons icing sugar
  1. Cut the butter into pieces and let it warm to room temperature. Then add sugar and eggs, and mix.
  2. Break the chocolate bars into pieces and put them into a small bowl. Ask an adult to melt the chocolate using the “bagno Maria” method (put the bowl on boiling water in a small pot). When the chocolate is completely melted, set the bowl aside and let the chocolate cool.
  3. Break the biscuits using your hands; make them into crumbs.
  4. Add chocolate to the butter and mix.
  5. Then add this mixture to the crumbs and mix again.
  6. Take the dough and make the shape of a salami. Wrap it in a layer of plastic film or greaseproof paper.
  7. Put the chocolate salami in the fridge for 3 hours or more.
  8. Then remove the salami from the paper and dust it with icing sugar.
  9. Cut into slices and serve.

Enjoy it!
