  • 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


  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.
