All you need is 5 ingredients for this easy no bake dessert. Everyone has their own version of this classic Italian dessert. I personally like to keep it simple. If you like more variety in your chocolate salami, by all means add a few different nuts. The texture of the smooth ganache combined with the crunchy biscuits and pistachios are a true delight worth splurging on. The Holiday season has begun so why not enjoy a treat or two?  

Ingredients:

14 oz vanilla tea biscuits

3/4 cup pistachios

2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

1 cup heavy cream 

1/4 cup butter 

Powdered sugar (optional)

 

Instructions:

1 . In a large plastic bag, beat the vanilla biscuits into small pieces using a rolling pin. 

2 . Coarsely chop the pistachios.

3 . Heat the heavy cream in a saucepan or microwave so that it comes to a simmer (not a boil). Place the chocolate chips in a large bowl and pour the hot cream over the chocolate chips. 

4 . Cut the butter into small cubes and place it into the bowl. 

5 . Wait a few minutes and begin to stir the chocolate. You may need to reheat the chocolate in the microwave a few more times. If so, heat in 20 second intervals. You don’t want to overheat the chocolate. 

6 . Once the chocolate is a smooth silky consistency, add the crushed biscuits and chopped pecans. Stir to combine.

7 . Place a large piece of plastic wrap onto a flat surface and pour the chocolate mixture on top. 

8 . Roll the plastic tightly around the chocolate mixture so that it resembles a stick of salami. You can wrap a second piece of plastic wrap over the chocolate salami if you want to make it more secure. Finish off by tying both of the ends. 

9 . Refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Once the time has passed, remove the plastic wrap and coat the chocolate salami in powder sugar.
