This is a chocolate treat that looks like a salami -- bizarre, I know, but kind of fun! And great for kids because you can slice off a bit to put in their lunch boxes or to serve after school every day for a few days, as needed. There's hardly any cooking time in this recipe, but you will need to allow for the "sausage" to chill.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • 100 g milk chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons single cream or 2 tablespoons light cream (about 18% milk fat)
  • 50 g soft unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated unwaxed orange zest
  • 50 g blanched slivered almonds
  • 75 g favourite cookies
  • icing sugar, for dusting

Directions

  1. Cut the chocolate into very small pieces and melt in a pan over very low heat with the cream and the butter.
  2. Meanwhile, put the almonds and cookies into a ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin or empty wine bottle.
  3. Stir the crumbled almonds and biscuits into the melted chocolate.
  4. Leave to cool, then chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  5. Spoon into the centre of a large piece of clingfilm or wax paper.
  6. Shape into a sausage and chill for at least four hours.
  7. Just before serving, dust the sausage with icing sugar.
  8. This gives it a"skin" look which won't last long but is fun.
  9. Keep chilled and slice as needed over a few days.
