Diet Considerations

  • Vegetarian

Ingredients (Serves 6 – 8)

  • 8 oz dark unsweetened chocolate in powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 10 oz cookies (animal cookies)
  • 8 oz sugar
  • 7 oz butter
  • 7 oz raw almonds
  • 6 oz pistachios (no shell)


Prep Time: 25 minutes.

Cook Time: 2 hours.

  1. Prep the butter and cookies

    Melt the butter. Chop the cookies into tiny pieces (smashing the cookies or using a food processor).

  2. Make the egg mixture

    Mix the eggs with the sugar in a food processor on high speed until frothy. Then add the chocolate powder and melted butter and blend on low. 

  3. Add it all together

    Put your mixture from step 2 in a bowl and add the cookies, the almonds, and the pistachios.  Mix together by hand; the mixture must be very thick.

  4. Make your rolls

    On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, form a salami roll of about 7-8 inches with half of the mixture (Hint: wet hands make it easier to shape). Once you have a nice roll, tear the parchment paper lining the sheet in half and wrap your roll. Repeat with the other half of the mixture.

  5. Freeze

    Put the two chocolate salami rolls in the freezer for 2 hours to harden them. When finished, cut into slices; you can do thick or thin depending on your preference.
