Chocolate Salami Bites

It’s this time of the year again! Chocolate salami is one of my top favorite summer desserts and I always try some new recipe every start of summer. This year I just slitely changed the food styling and turned it to small bites that can serve as treats for parties.

 

 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 200 g. plain biscotti, coarsely crushed
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, at room temperature
  • 340 g. semisweet chocolate chip
  • 1/4 cup brewed coffee
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest (about 1/2 medium orange)
  • 150 g. dark chocolate
  • 150 g. white chocolate
  • orange zest

Instructions

  • Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Spread the almonds, walnuts and crushed biscotti in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake until the nuts are lightly toasted, 6 to 8 minutes. Cool completely.
  • Put the butter and chocolate in a heatproof medium bowl and place the bowl over a pan of barely simmering water.
  • Stir until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth, about 6 minutes.
  • Stir in the coffee until smooth.
  • Add the almonds, walnuts, biscotti pieces and orange zest, and stir until combined. Cover the bowl and refrigerate until firm but moldable, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  • Divide the chocolate mixture in half.
  • Place half of the mixture in the center of a plastic wrap.
  • Using a spatula, form the mixture into a log.
  • Roll up the log in the plastic and twist the ends to seal.
  • Roll back and forth on a work surface a few times to make the log evenly round.
  • Repeat with the remaining chocolate mixture.
  • Refrigerate the logs until firm, about 1 hour.
  • Cut the logs in 0,5 cm slices and put them back in the refrigerator.
  • Melt the 2 chocolates in two different bowls over shimering water.
  • Dip every slice in the dark chocolate first and place them on baking paper.
  • Return them in the refrigerator and let them cool for at least 15 minutes.
  • Took them out and repeat the procedure with the white chocolate.
Tip: The dessert can be frozen for up to 1 month. Thaw at room temperature for 25 minutes before slicing.
