Croatian chocolate salami | Čokoladna salama

Ah, another Christmas (or anytime really) no-bake winner. This chocolate salami recipe is very decadent, rich and, of course, chocolatey. It’s a bit too chocolatey for me but with the addition of all the nuts and dried fruit this recipe is a taste sensation.

Because you need to store it in the fridge for atleast two days to allow all the flavours to develop, you can make this salami up way ahead of time and have it prepped and ready to go when guests arrive. Just take it out of the fridge, rub it with icing sugar and it’s good to go!


  • 200 grams dark chocolate
  • 100 grams unsalted butter
  • Two  egg yolks
  • One tablespoon milk chocolate cocoa
  • One tablespoon  caster sugar
  • Two tablespoons rum
  • Quarter teaspoon cinnamon
  • Quarter teaspoon nutmeg
  • Quarter teaspoon ground cloves
  • 20 grams dried apricots, chopped
  • 20 grams red glace cherries
  • 60 grams Milk Coffee biscuits 
  • 50 grams dried figs, chopped
  • Half a cup almond meal
  • Icing sugar, to serve


  1. Melt chocolate and butter in a steam bath over boiling water on a low heat. Use a low until smooth.
  2. Remove chocolate from heat and add egg yolks and stir through. Add all the remaining ingredients (except the icing sugar).
  3. Combine all the ingredients, stirring well and refrigerate until it’s firm enough to shape and not fall apart This should take about two hours.
  4. Roll into a 25 centimetre log and wrap in plastic cling film. Twist the ends to seal and refrigerate for at least two days.
  5. To serve, roll in icing sugar then slice at least 5 mm thick and serve.

Let me know if you tried this chocolatey treat and what you thought?
