Have you had a Chocolate Salami or as the Italians would say, “salame di cioccolato”? Watch and learn how Ben, from Sorted, makes this super easy no-bake treat! Your guests will think it is a real salami especially when it is dusted with powdered sugar and tied like a proper salami with kitchen or cooking string. Serve straight from the fridge and place it on a wooden board, cut some slices — spreading them out as you would real slices of salami — leave a knife on the board, for people to cut more slices, as they wish.

100 g salted butter
100 g cocoa powder
1 egg
100 g caster sugar
1 handful pistachios
